Police in Cibolo today released the causes of death for a brother and sister found dead earlier this week. Police say that 68-year-old Patricia Peek's death is a homicide caused by blunt force trauma to the head. They say that it appears that a bar stool and a large stone found inside her home were used to kill her. Police say her brother, 51-year-old Keith Tanner, was killed by a gunshot wound to the chest, likely self-inflicted. Police say Tanner mailed a letter to relatives with plans to take his own life.
House members kill more Senate bills as revenge
May 22, 2013 18:50 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Members of the Texas Houses temporarily expanded their retaliation against the Senate for failing to move their bills.
A Republican lawmaker joined the fray Wednesday by targeting minor bills by Granbury Republican Sen. Brian Birdwell. Rep. Debbie Riddle announced she would filibuster each of his proposed laws because of an amendment she wanted.
Houston Democratic Reps. Senfronia Thompson and Sylvester Turner joined Riddle in threatening other Senate bills with filibusters. The senior lawmakers said senators were not showing proper respect for the work done by the House of Representatives.
Democratic Rep. Ruth McClendon began filibustering bills by Houston Sen. Joan Huffman on Friday, because she is blocking a House bill to set up a commission to investigate false convictions.
All lifted their filibusters after receiving reassurances from the Senate.
