Author: the associated press

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies say that as a couple prayed together, their daughter-in-law shot them in the head.

The Tampa Bay Times reports (http://bit.ly/1Mpe65M) that details of the Nov. 11 killings were outlined in a search warrant filed in Hillsborough Circuit Court this week in the first-degree murder case against 30-year-old Marisol Best.

Best has been arrested on charges of first-degree murder, and Thursday she remained held without bond. Jail records did not show whether she had an attorney.

According to the warrant, Best told detectives that while visiting her in-laws’ home, she heard Virgil and Shirley Best making “negative” comments about her husband’s upcoming trial on child sex charges.

Her husband, Robert Best, is in a different jail, held without bail on charges of failing to appear for trial.
