A court-appointed attorney for the 21-year old man accused of killing his parents in their gated-community home in Katy entered a not guilty plea to capital murder charges. 

 

Ryan Robert Walton was arrested on May 31st outside a Rosenberg burger joint, while driving his mother’s car.  Investigators say 54-year old Michael Robert Walton and his 52-year old wife Lynda had been gunned down the previous night.   Surveillance video reportedly showed the younger Walton driving the car out of the neighborhood on the night of the killings.

 

Walton remained silent through Friday’s hearing.  He could face the death penalty if convicted.  Another court date was scheduled for November 7th, where procedural motions over the evidence presented at trial will be heard.
