Guilty Plea for Double Murder in Rockport

ROCKPORT - A man facing life in prison or the death penalty for killing two men in Rockport has chosen to plead guilty to murder. David White will serve 50 years in prison.

In October 2013, 72-year-old Dennis Barsness and 54-year-old Martin Chadwick were brutally beaten inside their home. Both men died within weeks of the attack.

Based on tips that the attacker was driving a victim's truck, police were able to arrest 32-year-old David White near San Antonio. Investigators said the victims had recently met White.
