Jury Deliberates Fate of Longbine Father and Daughter

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - At the Nueces County Courthouse, the fate of the father daughter duo accused of murder is now in the hands of a jury. Was it self defense or cold blooded murder? That is what the four women and eight man jury will have to decide.

Chasity Longbine, 25, and Dennis Longbine, 56, are accused of shooting and killing Jesse Quintanilla, 30, in May of 2012.

The defense have maintained that Quintanilla was abusive and that Chasity Longbine was defending herself. The prosecution said Quintanilla was fleeing and was shot in the back.

While the jury has to decide whether the pair is guilty of murder, they were given two lesser included options they can also consider.
