FORT WORTH -- A New Mexico man has been sentenced to seven years in prison in the shooting deaths of two men at a Keller house in 2006.
Authorities said that they had confiscated an AK-47 assault rifle that they believe was used to kill Samuel Padilla, 20, no relation to James Padilla, and Samuel Padilla’s cousin Armando Perez, 22.
James Padillas had been a roommate of the victims, Keller police said.
Keller police said there were no signs of forced entry into the house, which contained weapons, marijuana, cash and drug packaging materials. A substance that police said was used to dilute drugs such as coc aine also was found.
The men had been dead several hours when their bodies were found by Perez’s wife, Maria, Keller police said.
Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney Darrell Davila said Monday that after the capital murder indictment on Padilla, a material witness in the case was murdered.
