Teenager charged in death of parents at North Texas home

🕐 1 min read

CROWLEY, Texas (AP) — North Texas police say a teenager is charged with two counts of murder in the death of his adoptive parents at the home they shared south of Fort Worth.

Crowley police Chief Luis Soler said at a news conference Thursday that 17-year-old Carl Edward Brewer was arrested a day earlier following a standoff at the home.

Officers found the bodies of Troy and Mary Brewer after being called Tuesday on a welfare check. After footsteps were heard upstairs, a tactical team was called and the standoff ensued.

Brewer exited the home several hours later after tear gas was deployed. He’s being held on a $200,000 bond.

Police had responded to the home several times since 2010.

It wasn’t clear whether Brewer has an attorney to answer the allegations against him.
