Tx. man who killed wife's lover says he won't divorce her

FORT WORTH — Darrell Roberson said Tuesday that he thought his wife was being raped when he fatally shot her lover in 2006.

In his first public interview since his wife, Tracy Roberson, was sentenced to five years for involuntary manslaughter, Darrell Roberson said he wouldn't have done anything different the night he found his wife and Devin LaSalle embracing in a truck in front of the Robersons’ south Arlington home.

"When I heard my wife scream rape and I saw (LaSalle) trying to drive off from the scene, I had no choice but to do what I did," Darrell Roberson said. "If I had to do it over, I’d do it again.”

He said he never considered divorcing his wife. "When I took my marriage vows I took them seriously. I’m going to stick with my family for better or worse,” he said. Tracy Roberson must serve 2 1/2 years before she is eligible for parole.
