Samantha KettererMay 23, 2019

A Houston teen accused of fatally shooting his parents will be retried in October, several months after a Harris County jury forced a mistrial in the case.

Antonio Armstrong, Jr., who is now 19, is due back in court on Oct. 4 for a new trial, attorney Rick DeToto said.

“It’s good to be away for a while but we’re ready to get back,” DeToto said on Tuesday morning. “We know this case inside and out and we’re looking forward to a second trial and showing 12 people that A.J. is not guilty of this crime.”
