3-year-old girl reveals her wife took her own life


A man from Texas who claimed his common-law partner had committed suicide while they were fighting was revealed as his suspected killer – when their 3-year-old told police, “Daddy shot mommy.

Dabreon Banks, 27, is accused of shooting Kimberly Hernandez, 24, in their Houston apartment on Monday night.

The couple’s baby girl and 20-month-old son were both inside the house at the time, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

Banks had initially claimed that he and Hernandez were “playing fight” when the gun went off, but later said she shot herself in the head during a physical argument over text messages on his telephone.

Neighbors told authorities they heard Banks screaming that his wife had just shot herself moments after the shots rang out.

But MPs said the couple’s daughter witnessed the shooting, telling them “Daddy shot mum”.

Banks was arrested at the house and charged with murder. He is being held on $ 75,000 bond.
