HOUSTON A Houston father whose wife was murdered earlier this week is hoping to regain custody of his three young sons next week.

Keith Schuchardt is allowed to see baby Keegan and his other boys as often as he wants. The children are staying with relatives who live near his home.

Schuchardt sent KHOU 11 News photos Friday of himwith Keegan.

Schuchardt s wife, Kala Golden, was gunned down outside a pediatric center in The Woodlands Tuesday where she had taken then 3-day-old Keegan for a checkup.

The killer kidnapped Keegan, who was found safe in Harris County a few hours later.

Verna McClain, 30, was arrested and charged with capital murder. She ll be back in court on Monday.

Meanwhile, Schuchardt is dreading the day he has to tell his children what happened to their mother, whose funeral is scheduled for next week.

A barbecue fundraiser will be held Saturday tohelp the family pay for funeral expenses. It starts at 10 a.m. at Charles Traylor Sports Park in Willis.
