Woman Charged With Husband’s Death

Amnesty Recreates Guantanamo On Sixth Anniversary

BETRAM, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas woman has been charged with murder after calling authorities to say she shot her husband.

The Burnet County sheriff’s office said 42-year-old Karra Trichele Allen called Monday night to say she had shot her husband, 38-year-old Brian Dean Allen. She remained in jail Wednesday on $500,000 bond. Jail records had no attorney listed for her.

According to an arrest warrant, she said she and her husband were at their home near Bertram, located about 40 miles northwest of Austin, when they argued and she killed him.

Brian Allen’s father, Rick Allen, a former Burnet County sheriff’s chief deputy, tells the Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/16OctsD ) he “had no idea” what the argument was about. He says his son, who owned a construction company, was successful, generous and hardworking.
