HOUSTON (KIAH) — The sentencing trial has begun for a former Houston-area high school football coach convicted twice of fatally shooting his pregnant wife during what authorities say was a staged burglary more than 24 years ago.
David Mark Temple was convicted in August 2019 for a second time for killing of his wife, Belinda. But that jury could not decide on a sentence, prompting a judge to declare a mistrial. Prosecutors had sought a life prison term.
A new resentencing trial for Temple began on Monday after being delayed in part by the coronavirus pandemic.
