ODESSA, Texas (AP) - A West Texas man is in custody on accusations that he killed his ex-wife and critically injured her son in a shooting on Christmas Eve.

L.C. Davis Jr. led police on a high-speed chase from Midland to Odessa. The 55-year-old Davis is accused of shooting his ex-wife, 50-year-old Venesta Davis, and her 20-year-old son, Andrew Darius Thurman.
