As for his recent charge of capital murder, Pasadena police said Means shot a 6-year-old girl several times following an argument over spilled water from a clogged toilet.

The girl's mother was not at home at the time of the shooting. She was actually attending the vigil for the mother and three kids who were killed last week in a fiery crash caused by an alleged drunken driver, police said. 

Pasadena police said Means was not in charge of watching the child and someone else may have been inside the home, but no further details about who else was inside the home were given.

Means made his first court appearance late Saturday night and was given no bond.
