    On October 29, 1972, four armed men hijacked an Eastern Airlines 727 jet at Houston Intercontinental Airport. The perpetrators fatally shot ticket agent Stanley Hubbard at the gate, and wounded jet refueler Wyatt Wilkinson. They held more than 40 passengers and crew members hostage at gunpoint on board as the plane flew to Havana, Cuba, where the hijackers were arrested upon arrival. On November 6, Judge John Singleton indicted Charles Tuller, his teenage sons Bryce and Johnathan, and William Graham on charges of air piracy, kidnapping, and interfering with interstate commerce by threat of force.
