Man charged, accused in father’s killing outside Humble Chuck E. Cheese, police say

HUMBLE, Texas – A man has been arrested and charged after police said he shot and killed a father outside a Chuck E. Cheese in north Harris County.

Antoine Badon, 27, was charged for the murder of Calogero Duenes, 24, on New Year’s Eve.

Police said Duenes was holding his 6-year-old daughter’s birthday cake outside Chuck E. Cheese located in the 100 block of FM 1960 Business when he got into an argument with Badon, who was driving a burgundy-colored Ford.
