Selwyn Crawford of The Dallas Morning News has a story today about that triple homicide in Arlington over the weekend. Police say two women were killed by the estranged husband of one of them, leaving eight children without mothers.
The story is behind the paper's paywall, but in short, the pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church, which the victims attended, says that the church is seeking help for the children, who range in age from 1 to 12. Seven of the children were in the apartment in the 3500 block of Wakefield Circle when the shooting occurred.
The husband, Dalton James Bennett Jr., was arrested at his mother's home nearby after the 1:30 a.m. shooting. Bennett's estranged wife, Sheryl Bennett, 31, was shot in the neck and right shoulder, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.
Her sister-in-law, Tana Todd, 25, was also killed, as was a male friend, Crawford reports. Sheryl Bennett's brother, Todd's husband, was critically wounded but survived.
