Capital Murder In Texas Will Have Its Justice Served
To date, in December of 2019, a capital murder in Texas occurred that took the life of 11-year-old Logan Cline. According to Times Record News, the capital murder in Texas happened at the Wichita Falls motel room. The police reportedly discovered Logan’s body in February in a nearby abandoned car. In the report, Logan’s body was said to have been iced down and soaked in bleach to remove evidence by the 35-year-old drifter. A pathologist who conducted Logan’s autopsy testified that the child was beaten over most of his body, consequently causing his death due to blunt force trauma.
Although public defender Gant Grimes admitted that Trumbull really killed Logan in his capital murder in Texas’ closing argument, he claimed that Trumbull did not have the “intent” to do so and the jury must reconsider imposing a lighter verdict of felony murder. However, the lead prosecutor on the capital murder in Texas case, District Attorney John Gillespie, stressed Trumbull’s abuse of Logan that caused the latter’s death was intentional.
