2 beaten to death in Houston nursing home

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON, Texas (AP) - A resident of a Houston nursing home is accused of beating two of his roommates to death with the armrest of his wheelchair.
    
Police spokesman Victor Senties said a 56-year-old resident of the home will be charged with capital murder for the deaths of two other men, ages 77 and 51.
    
Senties said it's not clear what provoked the Tuesday night attack, but that the three men in the room did not get along. A fourth roommate was asleep.
    
Irma Chavez, the daughter of 77-year-old Antonio Acosta, said her father had complained about the accused attacker repeatedly - and as recently as earlier Tuesday.
    
She said the nursing home told her she could move her father somewhere else.
    
An employee at the nursing home declined to comment Tuesday.
