Longview, TX — Barbara Hudson lost Byron Houston’s game of Russian Roulette.
Hudson died Nov. 17 after being shot in the back at her home in the 1100 block of N. Third Street in Longview.
Houston told officers he leveled his revolver — loaded with only one bullet — at Hudson’s back, spun the cylinder and pulled the trigger, according to the criminal complaint filed by investigators for his arrest.
It wasn’t the first time he’d played the deadly game.
According to the affidavit, the 30-year-old Longview man told investigators he occasionally played the game while “joking around” because “it made her mad,” but on Nov. 17 the odds caught up to Houston, and a single bullet killed the 39-year-old woman.
