Two kids, ages 12 and 13, will face capital murder charges in connection with the shooting deaths of Darlene and Alan Nevil.

On Aug. 17, Garland police responded to a call of a man being shot on the 600 block of Rilla Drive.  When they arrived, they found Alan Nevil injured in his neighbor's yard.

Nevil was able to tell officers who shot him before he was transported to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas where he underwent surgery.

A short time later, Nevil's wife, 46-year-old Darlene, was found dead inside of the couple's home.

Police arrested two children, a 12-year-old female and a 13-year-old male, in connection with the crime based on information they received from Alan.

The two were later charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to Garland police. 

With the death of the second victim, police said the Dallas County District Attorney's office will seek capital murder charges against the children.

The two remain in custody in the Dallas County Juvenile Detention Center.
