New Charges For Accused Murderer

A Longview man, accused of killing his estranged wife and shooting himself, is now facing new charges. 40 year old James Reedy was released from the hospital Monday, after recovering from a self inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Once Reedy was booked into the Gregg County Jail he was also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. He had previously served 6 years in prison for trying to shoot his ex-wife.

Reedy now stands accused of shooting to death, Lori Long last Monday in Longview.
