Howard’s fiancee, Kara Box, used her cell phone to film the argument which led to the shooting.

The argument took place in an alley behind Howard’s home on Don Juan Street in Abilene.

Box then provided the footage to a local television station - KTXS-TV.

It shows both John and Michael Miller holding firearms.

The father has a pistol in his right hand while the son, standing just a few feet behind him, is gripping what appears to be a shotgun.

The two shirtless men are holding the weapons while engaged in a verbal confrontation with Howard.

Howard is heard in the video yelling at the Millers to put their guns down.

‘If you come closer to me, I’m gonna kill you,’ John Miller is heard telling Howard.

‘Hey, did you hear him say he’s going to kill me?’ Howard says to Box as she’s filming.

‘Yes,’ Box replies.

‘I’m at the dumpster,’ Howard says before turning to the Millers. ‘Put the gun up and go inside!’

The argument becomes even more heated as both sides make threats against the other.

Finally, John Miller pulls the trigger on his pistol, though this is not captured by video.

John and Michael Miller have been freed on $25,000 bond. Their mug shots are seen above

‘They deserve to know that John and Michael Miller are murderers.’

Taylor County District Attorney James Hicks only learned of the existence of the video from KTXS-TV.

‘Video evidence like this is always graphic and very difficult to watch,’ he said in a statement.

‘But it is consistent with the charges.’

When asked what message she had for John and Michael Miller, Box said: ‘You deserve to spend your lives in prison.’

Box has since moved from the home on Don Juan Street near where the shooting took place.

John and Michael Miller have been freed on $25,000 bond.

We actually got to see white on white crime. It definitely happens more than we know. But it's not shown to the public like black on black crime is.

White on White crime? Now that’s something new.

As for the woman, I am happy you caught it on video, I am sorry for your loss.

How sad, there was no reason to kill the man, ppl cannot even have a simple argument these days, the world is going crazy. Please take away guns from ppl of all races, even the police. Ppl don't know how to behave with this kind of power. This was not even a case of self defense, this was in cold blood! Those two should be held without bond, being as though the whole incident was on video.
