LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Starting Monday, a Lubbock County jury will hear opening statements in a trial of a man charged with a triple killing in Pampa, which is about 180 miles northeast of Lubbock.
Levi King, 26, is accused of committing the 2005 Pampa murders within hours of killing two people in Missouri. King was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the Missouri murders. If convicted, he faces the death penalty in Texas for the murders of Brian Conrad, his pregnant wife Michelle, and her 14-year-old son Zach Doan.
The trial was moved to Lubbock due to extensive media coverage in the Panhandle. If convicted and sentenced to death, King's Texas punishment will take precedence over the Missouri sentence.
