(Seguin) -- A local man has been arrested and charged with the capital murder of a husband and wife just before noon Sunday in Guadalupe County. Guadalupe County Sheriff's investigators say 56-year old Robert Fadal was arrested and transported to the Guadalupe County Jail in connection with the crimes. Fadal is believed to be a physician in the area. According to the website Healthgrades, Dr. Fadal is a family medicine specialist in Seguin and has been practicing for 28 years. It list his address as 801 Timber Elm, which is located in close proximity to the location where the murders took place.
Lt. Craig Jones, an investigator with the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office, says the double homicide was reported at a home located in the 700 block of Timber Elm off of State Highway 46 North.
According to Jones, "the victims were a husband-wife pair targeted for no apparent reason. The husband died at the scene and the wife died at the hospital. There is no indication there was any dispute or altercation leading to the shooting. There is no indication at this that anyone else was involved with Fadal."
A family member of the deceased says she is hurt and still can't believe that this has happened.
