Teen accused of slaying mom, sis to be in court
The judge is expected to set bond for Jacob Ryan Evans. He s charged with capital murder in the deaths of his mother and 15-year-old sister.
He s been jailed since his October arrest at his upscale home in Aledo, 20 miles west of Fort Worth. He can be heard telling a 911 operator he is evil.
It s unclear what sentence Evans faces if convicted.
A U.S. Supreme Court ruling doesn t allow anyone under 18 who s charged with capital murder to face the death penalty or life without parole. Those are the only two punishment options for a capital murder conviction in Texas.
