Father Gets Death for Killing His 2 Children

Hector Medina sentenced to death for 2007 shootings

Execution has been ordered for an Irving man convicted in the 2007 shooting deaths of his two children.

Police say 29-year-old Hector Medina also shot himself during the attack just weeks after the children's mother left him.

The victims were Medina's 3-year-old son, Javier, and his 8-month-old daughter, Diana.

The children's mother wasn't home during the March 2007 shootings.

Medina in September was convicted of capital murder. A jury in Dallas sentenced him this week.
