CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - A North Texas man has been indicted in the July fatal shooting of his ex-girlfriend about a week after she accused him of stalking her.

A McLennan County grand jury Wednesday also indicted James Ray Brossett (broh-SET’) of Arlington in the wounding of the woman’s son.

Brossett was arrested and charged with capital murder and attempted capital murder days after the July 6 attack at a home near Crawford. Laura Patschke (PATCH’-kee) was fatally shot. Authorities say her 18-year-old son was shot in the arm after hearing someone breaking into the house.

Brossett, who remains in custody, also faces charges of stalking, violating a protective order and harassment.

He was arrested June 30 on the harassment charge and free on bond during the shootings.

An attorney for Brossett declined comment.
