View Comments ()



    A jury has convicted a Fort Worth man of capital murder in the November killing of his pregnant 16-year-old girlfriend.

    A judge in Denton on Wednesday then sentenced 21-year-old Garrett Gower to an automatic life prison term. Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.

    Investigators say Brittany Munoz was about six weeks pregnant when she was slain. A medical examiner ruled the cause of death was suffocation.

    Prosecutors say Gower attacked Munoz when she had threatened to tell his mother that she was expecting the couple's child.
