Capital murder charge filed in mom, daughter's deaths

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

The man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and her 13-year-old daughter on Christmas Eve is charged with capital murder.

Earlier this year, Curtis Adams, 44, was charged with indecency with a child.

Investigators say Adams shot his ex-girlfriend, 35-year-old Latasha Jones, and her daughter at their townhouse on Jetty Lane near Bellaire Boulevard.

He then took off with his seven-year-old son who witnessed one of the murders.

Adams then went to a relative's house.  His family members called police, saying Adams appeared drunk and kept saying he took care of some "unfinished business."

Police arrested Adams the same day near Missouri City.

His son is with relatives.
