BURNET COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) - In Karra Trichele Allen's first court appearance since she told police she killed her husband, prosecutors played her lengthy call to 911 and revealed text messages she sent to a friend just hours earlier.
Allen was arrested July 1 after Burnet County deputies say she shot and killed her husband and prominent business owner, Brian Allen.
During the detention hearing prosecutors convinced the judge they have enough evidence to keep Trichele Allen in jail on a $500,000 bond.
Among the new revelations were text messages prosecutors say Trichele Allen sent to a friend five hours before the shooting.
Sources said the messages stated she not only wanted to shoot her husband, but "hated him and wanted to cut him up and bury him under a pig pen."
Several sources in the courtroom told KXAN the state played the audio from her call to 911, which lasted between 10-15 minutes.
In that call, Trichele Allen claimed she shot Brian Allen because he was coming after her.
Burnet County Deputies who responded to the Bertram home also testified. Sources say they told the court that Brian Allen was found with two gunshot wounds to his back.
Investigators were called the sprawling two-story home on a large tract around 10 p.m. on the night of the shooting, officials said. Trichelle Allen was at the home when they arrived.
