Newton County, TX (CNN) - A southeast Texas pastor has been charged with murder. 

The Newton County Sheriff's Office says Rev. Luther Jones shot and killed his nephew, 34-year-old Curtis Jones at the Belgrade Baptist Church Sunday morning. Witnesses say Curtis had pulled into the driveway of the church. That's when the pastor approached the car and started shooting at his nephew.    

No motive for the shooting has been released, but a family member said there was a long-standing feud between the two.
