East Texas pastor charged with killing nephew
An East Texas pastor has been charged with murder in the shooting of his nephew outside of his church.
A judge in Newton on Monday set bond at $100,000 for 64-year-old Rev. Luther Jones of Bon Wier. The Newton County Sheriff's Office said Jones posted bail.
Investigators said 34-year-old Curtis P. Jones was shot Sunday morning while in an SUV outside his uncle's church - Belgrade Baptist Church in Bon Wier, about 145 miles northeast of Houston. Autopsy results are pending.
Investigators did not immediately release a possible motive for the shooting. The victim's sister, Juanita Jones, said the men had a long-running family feud. She declined to elaborate.
Jail records did not list an attorney for the minister.
