Texas governor's candidates speak on deadly wreck
 
 
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The two presumptive front-runners in the race for Texas governor say they're outraged by a probation sentence given to a North Texas teen for a deadly wreck that killed four pedestrians.
 
Attorney General Greg Abbott and Texas Sen. Wendy Davis discussed the case of 16-year-old Ethan Couch following his sentencing last week in Fort Worth.
 
Abbott says his office is studying whether the sentence can be reviewed.
The Republican tells KTVT-TV of Dallas that the result of Couch's case was "outrageous."
 
Davis, a Democrat who represents Fort Worth, told WFAA-TV says she wants to study changes that can be made "from a legislative perspective."
 
Couch was given 10 years' probation instead of prison in the June accident, a sentence that has gotten national attention.
