Cue the mood music…

Texas has this law that says property owners can shoot tresspasers and many homeowners take this very seriously. One of the principles of the constitution has to do with defending your property and I happen to agree with the law. Gayle and Sheila Muhs have taken this in an entirely new direction though. Just outside of their house they have a sign posted that says “Trespassers Will Be Shot. Survivers Will Be Reshot!! Smile I Will.” They have been accused of murdering a seven-year-old boy on public property that just happened to be adjacent to theirs’.

Basically the family of Donald Coffey Jr and some friends had decided to have a day of off-road fun and had spent some time in the woods near their Westlake, Texas home. On their way home last Friday night they stopped to use the restroom and got out of their vehicles. While they were stopped they heard the booming voice of Sheila Muhs cussing them out and telling them to get off her property. Then a shotgun blast, followed by more of the same.

The family jumped back in their vehicles and hurried home, which is when they noticed that Donald Coffey, his seven-year-old son and five-year-old daughter had all been shot. They were rushed to the hospital, where Donald Jr died on Sunday.

After the shooting incident Sheila Muhs called 911 and told the dispatcher “They’re running over our levee in big-wheel vehicles, and I shot them”. Oh, by the way, the levees are public property and the family never set foot on the Muhs’ property. So far the ugly mugs are being held on charges of agrgavted assault but those are expected to be upgraded to murder.

As a side note, I don’t expect either of them to become anyone’s bitch in prison.
