UPDATE: Police: Man who killed 8 had a dispute with woman victim

HOUSTON (AP) -- Authorities say a family of six children and two parents were handcuffed and fatally shot in the head at a Houston home on Saturday by a man with a violent criminal history who had previously been in a contentious relationship with the mother.

David Conley, who is 48, has been charged with capital murder in the deaths. Conley, who is being held in Harris County Jail, didn't appear at a court hearing Sunday where an arrest affidavit was read. The judge denied him bond.

The dead were identified as parents Dewayne Jackson, 50, his wife Valerie Jackson, 40, and children Nathaniel, 13, Dewayne, 10, Honesty, 11, Caleb, 9, Trinity, 7, and Jonah, 6. Nathaniel was believed to be Conley's son from the relationship with Valerie Jackson. The Harris County Sheriff's Office had earlier said that there were three adults and five children killed.
