I AM NOT ONE TO USE CAPS, HOWEVER... WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS? July 10, 2007)?Authorities have arrested five people in connection with the July 4 shooting death of Hidi Gower, 31, of Copperas Cove including the victim?s husband. Deputies found Gower after receiving a report that a woman was lying in the parking lot of the VFW hall in Kempner. She was airlifted to Scott & White Hospital in Temple where she died shortly after arrival. Police arrested the victim?s husband, Donald Dean Gower, 39, of Copperas Cove, on a warrant charging capital murder around 3:15 a.m. Tuesday at a motel in Manhattan, Kan., where Hidi Gower?s funeral is scheduled later in the day. He?s held in the Riley County, Kan. Jail pending an extradition hearing. Capital murder arrest warrants were also served on Jeremiah John Ellison, 25, of Copperas Cove; Regina Edwards, 25, of Copperas Cove, and John Robert Martinez, 27, of Copperas Cove. They will be transferred to the Lampasas County Jail later in the day. Deputies also arrested Chaka Romain Johnson, 31, of Lampasas on a capital murder warrant. Investigators have recovered a .45 caliber revolver that?s believed to be the murder weapon and two vehicles used in the killing, Lampasas County Sheriff Gordon Morris said in a press release issued late Tuesday morning. Morris said Hidi Gower was killed in a murder-for-hire plot. The motive was a life insurance policy, Morris said. Once an agreement was made, Donald Gower and his wife drove to the Kempner VFW to play in a pool tournament,? Morris said. At around 9:00 p.m., Donald sent his wife to their vehicle in the parking lot to obtain an item from the vehicle.? After she failed to return, Morris said, ?Gower sought help from another patron to help locate his wife. She was found lying beside their vehicle in a pool of blood.? WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS??? I apologize for ranting, this happens on televison, not at home. "T"

Tamara, Do you know these people? It didn't mention children unless I missed it. They will probably be wards of the court until they can either go to family members or foster homes. Hopefully they will receive help for the trauma, loss and upheaval. Take care, T
