The man reportedly told police he believed the intruder was the husband of a woman he had been having an affair with because Cason had been calling his phone all night long making threats and threatening to beat Cason’s wife “half to death.”
Cason’s wife later told police that Cason became aware of the affair the night before and became very angry, violent and drunk, threatening her and the Weatherford resident.
The following day, Cason instructed her to leave work and come home or he would burn the house down, Cason’s wife reportedly told police.
When she arrived home, Cason reportedly pointed a loaded gun at her and forced her to go with him and show him how to get to the Weatherford man’s home.
Cason beat on the man’s front door, possibly breaking the glass, but he did not answer the door, according to Cason’s wife, who said Cason got back in the vehicle and rammed the man’s vehicle into the garage.
Cason drove away, but she was reportedly able to get out of the vehicle on Front Street, according to Weatherford police.
The woman said Cason told her that he was going to burn the man’s house down.
Hudson Oaks police reportedly located the vehicle driven by Cason in Hudson Oaks and found two handguns, including a .40-caliber pistol matching the type of rounds found on the victim’s living room floor.
Cason was released from the Parker County Jail Sunday on $132,500 bond.
The Democrat was unable to reach Cason for comment Tuesday.
