Officials said the children in the house were not hurt.

Investigators determined Qiriathiam Phillips, 25, and Consetta Rao, 24, were suspects in this case. Deputies said Phillips and Rao reportedly forced their way into the apartment and shot Watson.

On July 15, Phillips and Rao were both charged with murder in connection to the death of Watson. Rao was also charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon, authorities said.

At the time of the murder, police say Phillips was out on seven felony bonds. Some of his charges include being a felon in possession of a firearm and aggravated assault, according to KPRC.
