Background on the case:

Based on a law that went into effect in 2003, prosecutors could charge David Temple on separate counts - one for the murder of his wife and one for the murder of her unborn child.

Belinda Temple was 8 months pregnant, a teacher. She complained to a friend that David was distant over her pregnancy, she put up shelves by herself in the baby room. David was off on a hunting trip. In reality he was having an extramarital affair and was with his gf. When she was found, she was crouching in a closet, a phone near her hand, where it's assumed she was hiding trying to call for help. She was shot in the head. The house had been made to look like a break in had occured. However, NOTHING was taken.

The murder is 1 week after her wedding anniversary.

6 days before her murder, hubby and gf "break it off" -

3 days before murder, David Temple tells gf he loves her.

David Temple is claiming he's innocent. He later marries the gf.

(A twins forum following the case, Heather, the current wife is a twin.)

His attornies say they have affidavits from an inmate, a former cop who overheard another inmate talk about doing the Temple murder.

When Nancy Grace started her new show on Headline News she had Belinda's parents in the studio with her. I think this was the day David's parents held a press conference about David's arrest. For some reason I think they held it at the gravesite of Belinda, or something like that. I'll try to hunt up the transcript.......it was a compelling interview.

Link to Nancy Grace's interview with Belinda's parents


Thirty-year-old Belinda Temple was found shot to death hiding in her bedroom closet.

You know, in Katy, Texas, high school football is not just a game, oh, no. It's a lifestyle. In fact Hollywood just released a blockbuster movie about football obsession, "Friday Night Lights." Well on the real football field, David Temple was nicknamed the Temple of Doom and turned into a local football hero, but now police believe he's not only the victim's husband, but could be a cold blooded killer who has walked free for six years.

The trial of David Mark Temple, the former SFA football player accused of killing his wife, former Nacogdoches resident Belinda Lucas Temple, more than seven years ago, has been postponed and may not take place until next year, the Houston Chronicle reported in its Monday edition.

The former Alief High School coach, who now lives in Richmond, was set to go to trial Monday, but because of problems with a state witness who was supposed to testify about gunshot residue evidence, the trial has been put on hold, the Chronicle reported.

Temple, now 37, was arrested in November 2004 and indicted by a grand jury several months later. Belinda was a graduate of Nacogdoches High School and SFA.

Belinda, who was eight months pregnant at the time of her death, was killed in her home in Katy on Jan. 11, 1999. On the day of the shooting, Temple, a coach at Alief Hastings High School, told officers he had taken his son shopping and to play in a nearby park, at the time his wife was murdered. He said he returned home from the outing to find her body in an upstairs closet. She had been shot once in the back of the head.

Temple was interviewed by police for about 30 minutes the night of the shooting, then he refused to answer any more questions and contacted an attorney.


I was trying to find this guy's name to add to the "Men Who Murder Their Wives" thread. I thought he had been convicted of his pregnant wife's murder, but he hasn't even gone to trial yet.

Sad and so unnecessary. Prayers for Belinda Temple's family, especially for her son.

Like Laci, Belinda is in Heaven holding her baby.
