Lester Bower was convicted on four counts of capital murder in the October 8, 1983, shooting deaths of four men at an ultralight airplance hangar near Sherman. The bodies were found at one of the victim's ranch. Parts of an ultralight plane missing from the hanger were later found in Bower's garage in Arlington.

Authorities said Bower killed one of the men in order to steal an ultralight he had advertised to sell for $4,000 and then killed the three other men when they showed up unexpectedly at the hangar.
