Prosecutors say house alarms and motion detectors indicate a Houston teenager whose father was a standout linebacker for Texas A&M before a brief NFL career fatally shot his parents.

Jurors were told during opening statements Tuesday that no one forced their way into the home and that Antonio Armstrong Jr. was the only person detected inside just moments before the shooting in July 2016.

The 19-year-old is charged with capital murder.

Defense attorney Rick DeToto countered that investigators decided early on that the teen killed Antonio and Dawn Armstrong then contorted the case to fit their opinion.
