Man Sought In Dalhart Slaying

KSCB News - October 15, 2009 12:00 am

(AP) – A Dalhart man is sought in

the shooting death of his wife in front of two of their

grandchildren after she told him to move out.

Dalhart Police Chief Tom Sanford on Thursday said a murder

warrant has been issued for 78-year-old Jose Abel Cancino.

Sanford told The Associated Press that Cancino is accused of

pulling a handgun Wednesday night and killing 63-year-old Elva

Perez Cancino.

The police chief says the couple “had just come from church,

and I think she had just told him he needed to move out.”

Their teenage grandchildren, a brother and sister, witnessed the

shooting outside the couple’s apartment complex.

Sanford says the suspect has family in the Del Rio and Midland

area, plus in Mexico.

Dalhart is a community of about 7,300.
