HOUSTON – A man accused of fatally shooting two people and injuring another person in northwest Houston Saturday morning has been charged with capital murder, authorities said.

Nathan Bryan Miller, 33, declined to appear in court. A judge denied the suspect’s bond, saying that the suspect could still be a risk to the community.

Police said it happened in the 1300 block of Neiman Lane near West Tidwell Road at around 8:10 a.m.

According to officers with the Houston Police Department, Miller confessed to shooting the victims because he thought they were practicing witchcraft. The victims were reportedly living in shipping containers.
