Jury to decide fate of man charged with murder of Manitoba snowbirds

January 30, 2014 - 11:55 AM

EDINBURG, Texas - A jury in Texas will soon be deliberating in the murder trial of a man accused of killing a Manitoba couple 25 years ago.

Evan and Wilda Squires of Minnedosa, Man., were snowbirds who regularly spent the winter months in Weslaco, Texas.

The seniors were shot and killed in their mobile home in November 1988.

In 2011, police made an arrest after allegedly matching a DNA sample to feces found at the crime scene.

Arturo Almaguer (ah-MONG'gehr), who is 44, has pleaded not guilty to capital murder charges.

A prosecutor says the case is expected to go to the jury in the next few days.
