Alecia, 15, and her mother, Melissa Cole, 32, were murdered by Jamie Cole. He was the stepfather of Alecia and the soon to be ex-husband of Melissa. She had filed for divorce and Jamie, her husband, was taken it well. They were killed in a case deadly domestic violence. They also had two sons in the house during the shooting, Piero Jr, age 10, and Lucas, age 2. They were both unharmed.
Jamie Cole and his estranged wife, Melissa Cole, 32, started arguing when he showed up at her place to drop off their two sons Piero, Jr. and Lucas. During the fight, Alecia, was trying to intervene and calm things down. It would work for a while, but then the parents would just start arguing again. As it got more and more heated, Alecia tried again to break it up, but this time it didn’t work. Melissa was shot a number of times by the front door and Alecia was found shot in the chest in a bedroom.
Jamie Cole then grabbed his 2-year-old Lucas and jumped in a car heading out of town. He left his 10 year-old son Piero, Jr. in the house where he had just killed his mother and sister, Alecia.
Jamie Cole was found about two hours later in a Wal-Mart parking lot where he had just purchased bullets. He was tracked down by the GM OnStar service on his truck.
He made some statement that he he wanted police to kill him, but he didn’t want to do it in front of his Lucas so he thought better of that.
Jaime Piero Cole was charged with 2 counts of capital murder. He was found guilty and sentenced to death, in Texas.
