ARLINGTON, Texas -- Darrell Roberson came home from a card game late one night to find his wife rolling around with another man in a pickup truck in the driveway.Wow, a woman might actually suffer an adverse consequence to making a false rape charge. Besides her lover getting shot, that is.
Caught in the act with her lover, Tracy Denise Roberson -- thinking quickly, if not clearly -- cried rape, authorities say. Her husband pulled a gun and killed the other man with a shot to the head.
On Thursday, a grand jury handed up a manslaughter indictment against the wife, not the husband.
In a case likely to reinforce the state's reputation for don't-mess-with-Texas justice, the grand jury declined to charge the husband with murder, the charge on which he was arrested by police.
