Holiday Murder in Hockley County

Hockley County Hockley County

"The neighbors said they had been fighting earlier in the day. Nobody called us. Our first call was at 1:00 am," said Hockley County Sheriff David Kinney.

It was the neighbors next door who called 9-1-1 early Friday morning. When police showed up, they found 26-year-old Brandon Lee Allen bleeding from a stab wound to his chest. EMS took him to a Lubbock hospital where he later died.

His wife, Michelle Allen is now in custody and charged with murder. Sheriff Kinney says his deputies were able to get information from two of the three young children who witnessed it all.

"We don't know all the details just yet," said Kinney. He told NewsChannel 11 the couple do not have a history of family violence but are still investigating why this happened.

Meanwhile, Kinney says this kind of thing was the last thing he thought would happen the day after Thanksgiving. "I've been with the department more than 20 years. I don't think I've ever worked one of these on Thanksgiving."
