Goliad County

The Goliad County Courthouse.

GOLIAD — The defendant accused of killing a Goliad father wrote rap lyrics describing the shooting while in jail, according to witness testimony Monday.

The defendant’s court-appointed attorney, Stephen Tyler, said there could be “factual inaccuracies” in the witness testimony from jail officials in regard to how the legal pad containing the lyrics was seized and that, if his client is handed a guilty verdict, the series of events leading to its seizure may be subject to scrutiny in an appeal.
