2 Charged In Killing Of Man Arrested For Sex On High Roller

HOUSTON, TX (AP) — Houston police have charged two men in the fatal shooting of a man who was arrested last month for having sex on a Las Vegas Ferris wheel.

Houston Police Department says Bryant Christopher Watts and Aaron Jones were being held without bond Monday on capital murder charges in the death of Phillip Frank Panzica.

Police say the three men and Panzica's fiancée left an adult entertainment club in Houston where she works early Saturday. The fiancée told police that Watts shot Panzica, kicked her from the car then drove off. The motive is unclear.
