TX - Four people slain in Houston killing spree, Sept 2014
Kimberly Cormier, 40, had only minor injuries after she and her boyfriend, James Earl Nicholas, 48, ran from the violent offenders task force Thursday.
The marshals were trying to arrest the couple on a capital murder warrant. Nicholas was killed in the shoot-out. A US Marshal said the suspects fired first.
A woman who was charged with murder after a deadly shootout with law enforcement faced a judge Monday... Authorities connected Nicholas and Cormier to the brutal slayings of Jose Bonilla, Kathrine Gingrich, Johnny Holcomb, and another victim...
After being arrested, Cormier allegedly confessed to her role in the killings. Authorities said Cormier admitted to participating in the slaying of Bonilla. Prosecutors said Cormier was spotted on surveillance video when Bonilla died.
She also allegedly confessed to participating or being present for several other homicides. Three of the victims were shot to death at their homes.

A Houston woman linked to four slayings will begin trial Wednesday on charges of capital murder, accused of killing a man during a robbery in 2014...
Police have said little about the cases, and even less about a fourth, which was investigated by the Houston Police Department...
Defense attorneys for Cormier are expected to put on testimony that she was a victim of "battered woman syndrome," a condition seen in a woman who has been repeatedly abused by a partner, court filings show.

The trial for Kimberly Nicole Cormier, 41, had been set to start this week but was rescheduled after two days of selection failed to yield a jury of 12 people.
A special "double panel" of 120 potential jurors is scheduled to be called April 26 to hear the case, court officials said.
