LUBBOCK, Texas – A man accused of gunning down a family at a rural Texas farmhouse is scheduled to go to trial.
Twenty-six-year-old Levi A. King is charged in the fatal shootings of 31-year-old farmer Brian Conrad; his 35-year-old pregnant wife, Michell Conrad; and her 14-year-old son, Zach Doan. They were found dead in their remote, one-story farmhouse in September 2005.
The crime caused widespread fear in the family's small community in Pampa, and Gray County District Judge Stephen Emmert later moved the trial to Lubbock.
Opening arguments are scheduled for Monday morning.
King faces the death penalty if convicted in Texas. He already was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in Missouri for separate slayings.
