Death penalty "definite possibility" for Barnes

A man accused of killing a Lufkin woman and her brother in July could be facing the death penalty, according to the Angelina County District Attorney Clyde Herrington.  It is a "definite possibility" that the state will pursue the death penalty for Terrance Barnes, 31, who is charged with capital murder, Herrington said.  Authorities believe Barnes stabbed his girlfriend, Rosa Pina, and her brother, Pepe Pina, to death at their residence on John Kolb Road on July 26. Barnes was arrested in the area that night, following a massive manhunt. Authorities say Barnes confessed to the stabbings.  Barnes was in District Judge Paul White's courtroom yesterday morning, where he was supposed to announce who his attorney would be but had failed to hire one at this point.  Barnes will return to court today.
