A Houston woman is expected to testify Monday about allegations of a
prostitution ring and death threats that, if true, would be key to the
defense of a Bellaire teen accused of killing both his parents as they
Antonio Armstrong Jr. was 16 when he was
arrested on a charge of capital murder, accused of fatally shooting his
mother, Dawn, and father, former NFL player Antonio Armstrong, in their
beds on July 29, 2016. He has been certified to stand trial as an adult
and faces the possibility of life in prison if convicted.
Armstrong’s defense lawyers have accused the
Harris County District Attorney’s office of concealing an audiotape of
an interview Maxine Adams gave Houston police that detailed her
allegations, which the defense says bolsters the teenager’s story that
the couple was killed in a home invasion.
