A plea hearing for a Sherman man accused of killing his husband has been continued. 65-year old James Maharg was scheduled to be in court for a probable cause hearing yesterday, with the plea hearing set for July 30th. He was charged with murder and evidence tampering in connection to the March death of his 63-year-old husband, Thomas Conley. Police say the murder came after months of mounting trouble for the couple, whose business was failing and home was going into foreclosure. At the time, police say the couple had been drinking tequila all day, habitually since December. Conley was found with chop wounds to his head.
