Texas DA to Seek Death Penalty for Man Accused of Killing 2

A Tarrant County district attorney said she will seek the death penalty against a man who authorities say killed two women and raped a third.

District Attorney Sharen Wilson said in a statement Thursday that 24-year-old Reginald Gerald Kimbro is charged with capital murder for the April strangulation of Molly Matheson in Fort Worth.

Kimbro also is charged in the death of 36-year-old Megan Getrum of Plano, who was killed days after Matheson.

Both women were sexually assaulted prior to their deaths.

South Texas prosecutors previously charged Kimbro with sexually assaulting an Oklahoma woman at a South Padre Island resort in 2014.

Kimbro's being held in the Tarrant County jail on a bond in excess of $2 million.

Online jail records do not indicate an attorney for him.
