A La Marque man was charged Thursday with murder in connection with the January shooting death of a woman in her home.
Byron Eugene Coleman, 38, is charged with murder, in addition to an earlier charge of felon in possession of a firearm after La Marque police found Brandy Rhines, 39, dead in her residence after apparently being shot several times, police said.
Coleman is in the Galveston County Jail on $450,000 bond, jail records show.
Coleman has a prior felony conviction in Galveston County on a 1997 charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child, court records show.
