MO convict now facing death-penalty case in Texas


Levi A. King pleaded guilty to murdering Orlie McCool, 70, and his 47-year-old daughter-in-law, Dawn McCool in Pineville, Mo., back in 2005. He got life in prison for that crime, but now he's being tried for killing a family in Texas, just hours after the McCools were murdered. Texas is pursuing the death penalty, and if King loses his case, the Texas death sentence will take precedence.
