    Cleburne Times-Review

    Police say a North Texas man drowned while trying to rescue a calf that had fallen into a pond.

    Coyote Renner, 29, was working ranchland in Cleburne Wednesday when he saw a calf fall into a stock tank, Cleburne Fire Chief Keith Scarbrough told the Cleburne Times-Review.

    Scarbrough says the tank is a small pond used for watering livestock that tends to be muddier than a typical lake.

    Scarbrough says the muddy waters could've been a factor in the drowning of Renner, who went by the nickname Cody.

    Christopher Lee Watts was charged with five counts of murder Monday for the deaths of his wife Shanann Watts and their two daughters Bella and Celeste. Watts had initially pleaded publicly that his wife and daughters had gone missing. Their bodies were discovered on the property of the oil and natural gas company Watts worked for. The D.A. said that it's "too early" to discuss whether prosecutors would seek the death penalty.

    The fire chief says Renner was still wearing jeans and boots when his body was removed from the about 7-feet deep area of the pond.

    He says his clothing could've contributed to fatigue.

    Scarbrough says the calf survived.
