The situation is horrible. The babies are now orphans.
I wonder if the wife was threatening divorce and taking away the babies?
This is a horrible man. He belongs in the middle east with his mental capacity.
I hope that the gun control nut cases don’t come out on this. It’s so easy for them to take things away. This guy would have done it with a baseball bat. Are they going to make baseball bats illegal? What about cars? Knives? Oh, yeah, knives are already illegal in some places.
Anyway, the guy should be flow to the Middle East. I’m sure that they would give him a pass on this and maybe someone would offer him their daughter
Husband Accused Of Killing Pregnant Wife:

SPRING, Texas — A man accused of shooting his pregnant wife to death said, “She had it coming,” when asked about the killing, KPRC Local 2 reported Monday.
Harris County sheriff’s deputies said Michael McDougall, 37, fired multiple shots at his wife, Jennifer, outside their home in the 18700 block of Autumn Breeze Drive at about 10:40 a.m. Sunday.
Deputies arrived at the home and found Jennifer McDougall’s body in the carport area.
Michael McDougall was also in the carport, armed with a handgun, investigators said. He was taken into custody with incident.
Jennifer McDougall, 30, was six or seven months pregnant with the couple’s fourth child. They had three children, ages 2, 4 and 8. They were all inside the home at the time of the killing, officials said.
When being taken from the homicide department to the Harris County Jail, Michael McDougall told reporters that he loved his children. Reporters asked him why he killed their mother and he smiled and said, “She had it coming.”
Neighbors said they were shocked by the shooting.
“I saw the cops bringing him outside and I was so upset,” said Steve Hochanadel. “I wanted to go over there and kick the crap out of him.”
Hochanadel said he worked with Michael McDougall for about two years. They were both petroleum engineers in Colorado before being moved to Houston.
“Very bright guy; very sharp,” Hochanadel said. “Had a great personality. It’s very sad what happened here today.”
Hochanadel said Michael McDougall’s demeanor changed after the move and the family had been in Houston since September. He said the couple seemed more stresses and more reserved.
Neighbors described Jennifer McDougall as reserved, but happy to be expanding her family.
Michael McDougall has been charged with capital murder.
The couple’s children are in the custody of Child Protective Services.
