Man charged in 2012 slaying of 3 near Houston


HOUSTON (AP) — A 20-year-old man has been charged with capital murder in the 2012 shooting death of three young men at an apartment complex in north Harris County.

Sheriff's officials announced Friday the arrest of Binh Hung Nguyen (WIN). He was booked into the Harris County jail Wednesday, where he continues to be held without bond.

Sheriff's spokesman Thomas Gilliland says investigators had to wait on forensics results and find some witnesses who had left the area to amass the evidence needed to arrest Nguyen.

He said a dispute led to the shooting but declined further comment.

The victims were 16, 18 and 21 years old. One was found outside the complex in February 2012 and the other two inside an apartment.

Online jail records did not indicate an attorney for Nguyen.
