Murder indictments handed down in deadly Houston drug raid
By JUAN A. LOZANO
HOUSTON (AP) - Prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted two former Houston police officers for their roles in a deadly January 2019 drug raid that left a couple dead. The Wednesday indictments follow similar charges that were filed in August. Ex-officer Gerald Goines was indicted on two counts of felony murder. Goines and his former partner, Steven Bryant, were each also indicted with tampering with a government record. The Jan. 28 raid came under scrutiny after police alleged Goines lied in order to obtain a search warrant. Killed in the shooting were 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas and 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle.
