DALLAS (AP) - The gunman police say went on a shooting spree outside a Texas courthouse this week had become increasingly frustrated by sexual misconduct charges his daughter lodged against him and 2 of his brothers.
His lawyer says he was so convinced of his innocence he rejected a plea deal that would have kept him out of prison.
Bartholomew Granger has been jailed since opening fire Wednesday outside a courthouse in Beaumont, where he was standing trial for aggravated sexual assault. He's now charged with killing a 79-year-old woman and wounding three others, including his 20-year-old daughter.
Records and interviews reveal the 41-year-old Granger and his brothers have been fighting the charges for nearly three years.
