This is part two in a two-part story. Listen to part one here.

The investigation over a West Texas shooting that killed one migrant and wounded another is in limbo. The twin brothers facing charges have law enforcement backgrounds. One was a warden, the other worked for the Sheriff’s office. They say they were hunting wild animals when they fired on the victims who had stopped at a watering hole after crossing a rugged stretch of border.

Nearly seven months later, the case has cast a shadow over the town where the men lived. KTEP’s Angela Kocherga reports from Sierra Blanca.
