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.

Daniel Paul Jones, 19, and Sarah Haslam, 20, both of Longview, were arraigned by 115th District Judge Lauren Parish in the Dec. 5 death of Ronnie Joe Gammage. A third suspect charged with capital murder in the case, 21-year-old Andrew Conrad Norwine of Arlington, was being held under $1 million bond in Vernon Parish, La., said Upshur County District Attorney Billy Byrd's office.
Byrd said he hoped Norwine would be transferred to Upshur County within a week or two. The district attorney also told reporters after today's arraignments that it was "too early to make" the decision whether he will seek the death penalty in the case.

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.
