LLANO COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Two teenagers were arrested early Monday morning in connection with the murder of a father and son in Tow, Texas, the Llano County Sheriff’s Office said.
The press release said Kyler Allen, 19, and Jordan Ostrander, 19, were arrested early Monday morning and charged with capital murder.
The sheriff’s office said Saturday that Preston Wessling, 38, and his 14-year-old son Evan Wessling were found with gunshot wounds around 4:49 a.m. on the driveway to the family’s home on Airport Road.
On Sunday, KXAN spoke to Howard Wesling Sr., Preston’s father and Evan’s grandfather.
He said he knew one of the suspects and thought he and his grandson were friends.
“I didn’t know this kid was an enemy,” Wessling Sr. said. “He was a friend of my grandson. I don’t know how to understand it. Maybe he could sit down and tell me why. You know, I hope he can sit down and tell me why he did it. But I hope he’s in jail when he tells me this.”
The suspects are being held at the Guadalupe County Jail, according to the LCSO.
The Texas Department of Public Safety, the Texas Rangers, and the Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office helped with the arrests.
