    Prominent Houston Bishop James Dixon, cousin of James Edwards, the 15-year-old charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Australian baseball player Christopher Lane, 22,  has publicly voiced his disappointment in his cousin and apologized to Lane’s family, reports KHOU.com.

    “A life is a life,” said Dixon. “It’s important for him to understand that someone’s life has been needlessly taken, a family’s total existence has been forever altered and you’re responsible.”
