A Travis County jury took 19 minutes to return an unanimous guilty verdict in the Capital murder trial of Paul Devoe in the 403rd Criminal District Court of Judge Brenda Kennedy. Darryl and Christine Gribble, the parents of Danielle Hensley one of the two girls who were shot point blank by Devoe, hold back tears as they answer briefly a few questions about the jury verdict Friday afternoon. “I just miss my daughter” said Christine. The sentencing stage will begin Monday morning when the prosecution will ask for the death penalty. Devoe wiped away tears as Judge Kennedy polled each juror for their verdict.
