Man accused of fatally stabbing estranged wife, in-laws at Dallas home; arrested at drive-thru
DALLAS (AP) ' Police say a Texas man is accused of stabbing his estranged wife and her parents to death in a Dallas home before he was arrested while pulling away from a fast food restaurant.
William Palmer is charged with capital murder in the deaths of 47-year-old Donya Palmer, 67-year-old Mary Davis and 69-year-old Raymond Davis.
William Palmer is being held on $1 million bail at the Dallas County Jail. Jail officials didn't know if the 50-year-old from Sachse had retained an attorney Thursday.
Detectives say Palmer confronted Donya Palmer outside her parents' home before following her inside and fatally stabbing all three.
Officers later tracked Davis to a Taco Bueno restaurant about 15 miles away and arrested him as he pulled out of the drive-thru.
