Appellant was romantically involved with Krissi Caldwell, the teenage daughter of the deceased. The deceased and her husband disapproved of their daughter’s relationship with appellant and forbade Krissi to see appellant. Mr. Caldwell testified that Krissi was not permitted to invite appellant over to the Caldwells’ residence and that neither he nor the deceased ever consented to allow appellant to be in their home. As a result of these restrictions, Krissi’s relationship with her parents grew increasingly strained. This tension eventually culminated into Krissi’s plan to have appellant murder her parents.
One evening, after her parents had gone to sleep, Krissi let appellant into the house. Krissi gave appellant a 9mm automatic pistol she had taken from her father’s nightstand. Armed with the gun, appellant entered the Caldwells’ bedroom and fired five or six shots into both of the Caldwells. Mr. Caldwell survived the attack, but Mrs. Caldwell died from multiple gunshot wounds.

A Texas jury Friday sentenced a 17-year-old girl to life in prison for soliciting the murders of her parents because they disapproved of her dating a boy of another race.
Jurors deliberated for more than three hours before returning the verdict against Krissi Lynn Caldwell of Frisco, a small town near Dallas.
Prosecutors said she and her boyfriend, Robert Anthony Gonzales, 16, conspired to kill her mother, Rosalyn Caldwell, 41, and father, Vernon Caldwell, 42. Gonzales will be tried later for murder.
The girl, with tears in her eyes, stood with her attorney before Judge John Roach when he read the sentence. The same jury returned the guilty verdict Thursday afte four hours of deliberation.
In final arguments, prosecutor Bill Schultz pointed at Caldwell and told the jury, ‘You’re looking at somebody who has absolutely no regard for human life.’ He said she would do anything to get her way.
Defense attorney Don McDermott called no witnesses and declined to present a defense.
McDermott charged in his closing argument that the state failed to prove its case against Caldwell, and placed all the blame on Gonzales. McDermott said, ‘He planned it, and he carried it out.
Authorities said a gunman slipped into the Caldwell home at Frisco during the night of March 6 and opened fire on the Caldwells as they slept. Mrs. Caldwell was killed, Mr. Caldwell was critically wounded.
During a hearing in May to certify Gonzales for trial as adult, a witness testified that Gonzales wanted to kill the Caldwells because they disapproved of inter-racial dating. Bobby Gonzales is Hispanic; Krissi Caldwell is white.
Gonzales, also of Frisco, will be tried later on charges of capital murder, soliciation of capital murder and attempted capital murder. He is suspected of firing the gun during the attack.
