DA to seek death penalty for man accused of killing 2

Posted: Updated:

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A Texas district attorney says she will seek the death penalty against a man who authorities say killed two women and raped a third.     

Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson said in a statement Thursday that 24-year-old Reginald Gerald Kimbro is charged with capital murder for the April strangulation of Molly Matheson in Fort Worth.     

Kimbro also is charged in the death days later of 36-year-old Megan Getrum of Plano.     

Both women were sexually assaulted prior to their deaths.     

Meanwhile, South Texas prosecutors previously charged Kimbro with sexually assaulting an Oklahoma woman at a South Padre Island resort in 2014.   

Kimbro's being held in the Tarrant County jail on a bond in excess of $2 million.     

Online jail records do not indicate an attorney for him.
