DNA Leads To Arrest In 24-Year-Old Texas Double Murder

A man has been charged in the shooting deaths of a couple nearly 24 years ago in a mobile home in Texas after DNA evidence linked him to the slaying.

Forensic scientists have identified the bodies of 11 people last to see Chilean President alive.

McALLEN (November 10, 2012)--Authorities have charged a man in the nearly 24-year-old murder of a Canadian couple at their South Texas trailer home.

Arturo Almaguer, 43, who appeared in a Weslaco courtroom Friday, is charged with one count of capital murder, one count of murder and one count of burglary.

He was being held on a $1 million bond.

He’s charged in the deaths of Evan Squire, 70, and his wife Wilda, 65, who were gunned down on Nov. 13, 1988 in their seasonal trailer home in Weslaco.

Authorities say DNA evidence collected after Almaguer was arrested in December in Grand Rapids, Mich., on separate charges implicated him in the couple's slaying.

The Squires were from Minnedosa, Manitoba, about 120 miles west-northwest of Winnipeg.
