Suspect in Texas officer's death got married after shooting

Posted November 22

— County records show that the man arrested in the fatal shooting of a San Antonio detective got married in the hours after the officer was killed.

A copy of a marriage certificate obtained by The Associated Press shows that 31-year-old Otis Tyrone McKane married a woman Monday morning at the Bexar (bayr) County Courthouse. He was arrested later that day.

Investigators say 50-year-old Detective Benjamin Marconi was shot Sunday while sitting in his patrol car writing a traffic ticket. McKane was apprehended when his car was stopped on an interstate. He told reporters he was angry about a child-custody fight and "lashed out at somebody who didn't deserve it."

No publicly listed telephone number could be found by the AP for the woman listed on the marriage certificate.

    Death penalty... We need to put the fear back into these criminals. No more "life" sentences. Bring back the slipknot, electric chair and the firing squad.
