Louis to again be tried in Fannin County court


Texarkana – An appeals court has overturned the murder conviction and life sentence of Bonham resident Corey Don Louis.

Louis had been found guilty of capital murder for the 2007 incident where he allegedly punished his girlfriend's two-year-old son so severely that the child died.

But the 6th Court of Appeals in Texarkana says Louis should not have faced capital murder charges and sent the case back to Fannin County prosecutors for a lesser charge.

The boy's mother, Danielle Cuba, has also been indicted in the death of her child.
