Texas Football Coach Accused of Killing Pregnant Wife Admits Having Affair at Time of Murder

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.
