Authorities: Man guns down wife, son kills him

MANVEL, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a Houston-area man who broke into his former home and fatally shot his estranged wife was gunned down by his son.

Brazoria County sheriff's investigator Jeff Dandeneau said an ongoing divorce was a factors in the deaths Saturday of 70-year-old Karla J. Boone and 63-year-old Stanley R. Boone.

Dandeneau tells the Houston Chronicle that Stanley Boone apparently broke into the home before dawn, and gunfire was exchanged. He says the son had a minor flesh wound and was treated and released from a hospital.

No charges have been filed against the son.

Stanley Boone brought divorce proceedings against his wife in 2009 after more than 30 years of marriage. A judge had issued a restraining order barring them from contacting each other.
