    An Odessa man who admits firing the shots that killed his pregnant wife, their unborn daughter and his mother-in-law insists the deaths were accidental.

    Leo Angel Luna contends the only target in the shooting was his brother-in-law, William Ponce.

    During a jailhouse interview with the Odessa American, Luna also blamed Ponce for causing the deaths.

    Luna contends the shotgun fired and struck the two women as he struggled with Ponce.

    Luna says the shooting was fueled by concern over the welfare of his 3-year-old son and his common-law wife, Diana Ponce. When William Ponce rebuffed those concerns, Luna said he was enraged. Luna also admits going to the home armed.

    This is a strange one. I wonder what he meant by being concerned for the welfare of his 3 year old? And he brought a weapon.
