The man accused of killing his common-law wife over the weekend in Smith County was in court Monday. 64-year-old Doyle Mason was appointed an attorney and will remain behind bars on $250,000 bail. Mason admitted he killed 81-year-old Mary Jean Partridge. He claimed he was protecting her from the Houston Mafia. The pair lived together for 27 years. Partridge's body was discovered Sunday morning with multiple gunshot wounds to the head.
