HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston man faces capital murder charges in the killings of his former girlfriend and her teenage daughter who were found shot on Christmas Eve.

Curtis James Adams is accused of fatally shooting 35-year-old LaTasha Jones and 13-year-old Jakaela Newhouse.

The Houston Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/U78gL6 ) that Adams was charged earlier this year with indecency with a child for a January incident involving the daughter. Court records show Adams denied any inappropriate behavior when interviewed by police.

Investigators believe the 44-year-old Adams shot Jones and her daughter, then left with his 7-year-old son. Police say the boy saw one of the shootings. He's now living with family members.

Adams remains jailed in Fort Bend County on aggravated assault and firearm possession charges. An attorney has not been appointed to represent him.
