GILMER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) — A state district judge set bond at $1 million each today for two of three persons charged with capital murder in the death of a Longview man.
Capital murder in Texas is punishable only by death by lethal injection, or life imprisonment without parole.
Jones and Haslam were clad in orange jail-issue jumpsuits during their brief arraignments this morning.
Jones appeared with his court-appointed attorney, Longview lawyer Kevin Settle, while Haslam appeared with her court-appointed lawyer, Mt. Pleasant attorney Charles Mac Cobb.
Cobb said his client was exercising her rights to remain silent, and to have an attorney present during all questioning.
Smith and Haslam had been arrested in Gregg County.
