A Killeen man at the center of an end-of-life court battle in Williamson
County has died.
Terry Mace died at around 1:00 a.m. at Seton Medical Center in Round Rock
Tuesday morning, according to family attorney Stephen Casey.
Last month, 43-year-old Mace fell and sustained a head injury at his home in
Killeen after suffering a heart attack. He soon became the focus of a courtroom
fight between his estranged wife, who requested he be removed from life
support, and his parents.
Mace's father won guardianship last week. He was optimistic about his son's
recovery after Mace reportedly opened his eyes.
Mace was a defense contractor in Killeen. An official cause of death has not
yet been made public.
