Texas Football Coach Accused of Killing Pregnant Wife Admits Having Affair at Time of Murder.
Belinda Temple had just finished her day as a special-education teacher at Katy High School in Katy, Texas, on Jan. 11, 1999, and headed home to her family: husband David Temple, and 3-year-old son Evan, who had a fever. Belinda, nearly eight months pregnant, stopped at her in-laws’ house to pick up some soup before going home. Within an hour she was dead — shot execution-style in her master bedroom closet. Although a cordless phone was found at her side, the 30-year-old didn’t have time to summon help for herself and her unborn daughter. More than two decades later, her husband is facing a retrial in the murder case.
