Man charged in deaths of Katy parents to plead not guilty

The 21-year-old man charged with murdering his parents at their estate home in Katy was formally arraigned Friday in a Richmond courtroom. Ryan Robert Walton listened as Assistant District Attorney Alex Foley read the findings of grand jurors, who had indicted him on capital murder charges in the shooting deaths two and a half months ago. It was the first time Walton has appeared publicly since sheriff's deputies arrested him on May 31 outside of a burger joint in Rosenberg, days after the bodies of his parents were found in their home in the The Lake Pointe Estates. Authorities said then that Michael Robert Walton and Lynda Renee Walton, 54 and 52, had been shot to death with a small caliber firearm.

Texas governor’s race ‘slightly closer,’ Rasmussen poll shows

AUSTIN ? The margin separating Greg Abbott and Wendy Davis in the race for Texas governor shrunk slightly over the last five months, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Friday. In March, Rasmussen?s last poll tracking the race showed Abbott, the Republican nominee, leading Davis by 12 points. That gap dropped by four points this month, pushing the race from ?Safe Republican? to ?Leaning Republican? on the polling firm?s 2014 Gubernatorial Scorecard. The news is positive for the Davis campaign.  A July survey performed by YouGov in collaboration with CBS and The New York Times showed Davis 17 points behind Abbott; an April Public Policy Polling survey put her behind [...]

NFL: Brady takes night off, while RG3 barely breaks a sweat

After Colin Kaepernick moved the 49ers 66 yards for a field goal, Flacco made himself right at home in Kubiak's variation of the West Coast offense, going 4-for-5 for 52 yards. Geno Smith, looking to retain his starting job in his second season, was 4-of-6 passing for 33 yards in two series with the first-team offense that included a 51-yard field goal by Nick Folk before giving way to Vick. The 34-year-old backup received a hearty cheer from the crowd at MetLife Stadium and moved the starting offense for the Jets down the field against the Colts' second-team defense. 1Sean Smith and Malcolm Bronson returned interceptions for touchdowns, and De'Anthony Thomas brought back a punt 80 yards for another score as Kansas City outlasted visiting Cincinnati 41-39.

The Astros have won their last five games against the Rangers, and six of nine meetings this season. 2. Entering Thursday, the Astros had 15 homers in their last 11 games. Their 32 home runs in July paced the American League. 3. The Rangers just lost a member of their braintrust. A.J. Preller, an assistant general manager [...]
