BELTON — Silence filled the 146th District Court at the Bell County Justice Center on Tuesday afternoon as the audio of a gunshot from a Glock 22 was played for jurors.

It was the lone and fatal bullet that former Temple Police officer Carmen DeCruz, a Killeen resident on trial for a second-degree felony manslaughter charge, fired at Temple resident Michael Dean on Dec. 2, 2019.
