Joseph Colone More News
a Texas court has upheld the capital murder conviction and death sentence for a man who killed a mother and daughter.
The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled Wednesday and denied the appeal of Joseph Colone.
In July of 2010, Colone shot and killed 41-year-old Mary Goodman and her 16-year-old daughter, Briana, at their home on Hartel Street in south Beaumont.
Mary Goodman had identified Colone as the man who robbed a Beaumont game room in June of 2010.
Prosecutors say he murdered Goodman to prevent her from testifying against him in that robbery and killed Briana because she was also at the home.
A jury in May 2017 decided Colone should receive the death penalty for the capital murder conviction and Judge Raquel West sentenced him to death.
Colone appealed, claiming among other things, the judge should have granted him a change of venue due to publicity about the case.
The appeals court ruled against Colone in each of the points of error he contends took place.
