Texas deputy sheriff, husband charged with choking death


A Texas deputy sheriff and her husband have been indicted for the choking death of a 24-year-old man outside of a Denny’s last week.

A grand jury indicted Deputy Chauana Thompson and husband Terry Thompson with the death of John Hernandez.

The husband and wife, who face life in prison, turned themselves in on Thursday night and by early Friday posted bail, which was set at $100,000 each.

Hernandez died last week after he was taken off life support. He’d been unconscious since May 28 when he got into an altercation with Terry Thompson outside of the Denny’s in suburban Houston.
