    TX - Stan Jackson, 50, & Janella Edwards, 41, murdered, Brookshire, 11 March 2010

    Police said Jackson and Edwards were apparently babysitting Brookshire Mayor Joseph Vaughn’s two children at the time of the slayings.

    Jackson and Edwards were the children’s godparents, police said.

    When the children’s mother came to pick them up at the home, she discovered the bodies and found her children hiding in a closet, police said.

    So, the murders occurred at the godparents' home and the children slept through the shootings? Is it being reported how old the kids are? My prayers go out to the children and the families but I don't think we've heard half the whole story yet. Not a random home invation, IMO.

    This video states that they are questioning two juveniles of interest at this time. The children slept through the murders which occurred early in the morning. The bodies were found at around 7 am by the children's mother who came to pick up the kids. The kids are six and nine and are said to be receiving therapy.

    I wonder if the mom works in the medical profession. She looks to have on scrubs when she speaks to the press. Maybe the children spent the night at the godparents and typically got picked up in time to go to school.

    Prayers to all of them.

    Dominique Lasker was still in grade school in Brookshire when family troubles forced him to find somewhere else to live.

    A Brookshire couple, Stanley Jackson and Janella Edwards, took the boy into their home and treated him as their own, giving him a stable life as he moved through middle and high schools and into the Marine Corps.

    Last year, Lasker, now a 26-year-old sergeant with a wife and child of his own, came home on leave to visit. By the time he left, Jackson and Edwards were dead, each shot in the head. And authorities claim Lasker pulled the trigger.

    A Waller County grand jury has indicted Lasker on a capital murder charge...

    A man already in custody on a California bank robbery charge was indicted on Thursday in the shooting death last year of a Brookshire couple, authorities said...


    FBI officials said Lasker was one of two men responsible for the Oct. 30 hold-up of a credit union near San Diego.

    Lasker, who was in the Marine Corps at the time of the hold-up, surrendered the next day. He has been in federal custody since.

    Two former Marines were sentenced Friday in San Diego to federal prison terms after pleading guilty to bank robbery.

    Dominique Dontae Lasker, 27, was sentenced to 10 years, one month, for bank robbery and brandishing a weapon. Davon Jacques Darden, 24, was sentenced to seven years for bank robbery.

    Lasker is also charged with two counts of murder in Texas, unrelated to the bank robbery.
