HOUSTON — A man has been charged with murder in the death of his wife, who two months ago requested leniency for him in a shooting that left her wounded.
Linda Joyce Hubert, 26, was shot to death last week in her apartment.
She had survived two bullet wounds in December and asked that her husband be offered probation. She said she would not testify against him and hoped that he would "get help."
Kenneth Leon Hubert, 27, surrendered to police after the latest shooting. Homicide Sgt. Jerry Novak said Hubert had heard that he was being sought but insisted that he was innocent.
Hubert was charged with murder and denied bond. He had been free on $5,000 bond on an attempted murder charge in the Dec. 18 wounding of his wife, and on $2,000 bond on a charge of kidnaping his girlfriend in November.
On Monday, Hubert was to have entered a plea in the December shooting.
