ODESSA, Texas (AP) — A West Texas man is in custody on accusations that he killed his ex-wife and critically injured her son in a shooting on Christmas Eve.

The Odessa American reports (http://bit.ly/10mGVKe ) that L.C. Davis Jr. led police on a high-speed chase from Midland to Odessa. The 55-year-old Davis is accused of shooting his ex-wife, 50-year-old Venesta Davis, and her 20-year-old son, Andrew Darius Thurman.

Police say the shootings occurred Monday night. On Tuesday, Midland police spotted a car they believed Davis was driving. Police say that when an officer tried to arrest Davis, he fled on Interstate 20.

Davis has a lengthy criminal record that includes convictions on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

He remains in the Ector County Jail. Online records did not list an attorney.
