ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A judge has denied bond to a 33-year-old Orlando man charged with fatally shooting his wife, who was eight months pregnant with twins.
Michael Boyce wore a protective vest during his first court appearance Saturday as he faces first-degree murder charges in the death of his 23-year-old wife.
He initially told deputies Alexis Boyce shot herself in the head, but later said he accidentally shot her.
Alexis Boyce and one of the twin were pronounced dead. The other twin remains hospitalized.
Deputies say the victim's parents were in their bedroom when the shooting occurred.
Leon Huntley, Alexis Boyce's father, told WFTV ( he ordered Michael Boyce to put the weapon down and called 911.
He said his daughter was in the U.S. Navy and moved to the home after learning she was pregnant.
