UPDATED: Woman uses cake to lure son-in-law, shoots him in the head
The bullet did not penetrate his skull.
Cake can be tasty, but when used as a lure by your mother-in-law, it can be downright deadly.
That might sound absurd, and it was meant to, but this scenario played out in real time in Rowlett. Jenelle Thompson invited her son-in-law to her trailer to enjoy cake and television. When he was sated and watching television she shot him in the back of the head. Miraculously, it would appear she missed the mark, or grazed the mark, since the bullet did not penetrate his skull. After barricading herself inside her home when police arrived on the scene, she relented and walked out. They noticed that at some point during the standoff she had shot herself as well.
UPDATE: Rowlett police are now saying that Jenelle Thompson was working in conjunction with her daughter, Robin Handel. According to reports, Robin Handel was having an online "affair" and wanted her husband out of the way. You can glimpse a picture of the little filly and her mother here.
