Father Acquitted in the Death of Drunk Driver

(Angleton, TX)  --  A Texas man is not guilty of murder for the death of the drunk driver who killed his kids.  

A Brazoria County jury ruled this afternoon there wasn't enough evidence to prove David Barajas was one who shot Jose Banda in 2012.  Banda had just slammed into Barajas' truck near Alvin and killed his young children.  

Prosecutors unsuccessfully argued Barajas was the only man who could have killed Banda, even though police never found the murder weapon and Barajas tested negative for gunpowder residue.
