ETX man sentenced to life in prison for 2007 murders

Released by US. Attorney's Office:

NACOGDOCHES, TX – A 29-year-old Nacogdoches, Texas, man has been sentenced to life in federal prison for his role in a double homicide which took place in Nacogdoches in August 2007, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales for the Eastern District of Texas and Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division.

Charles Cameron Frazier, aka "Mojo," pleaded guilty on Jan. 14, 2011, to committing a violent crime in aid of racketeering activity and was sentenced to life in federal prison on June 21, 2011 by U.S. District Judge Marcia Crone. Specifically, Frazier admitted that he had participated in the murders of David Mitchamore and Christy Rochelle Brown.

According to information presented in court, Frazier was a member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas (ABT), a race-based state-wide organization that operates inside and outside of state and federal prisons throughout Texas and the United States. The ABT enforces its rules and promotes discipline among its members, prospects and associates through murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to murder, assault, robbery and threats against those who violate the rules or pose a threat to the enterprise. Members, and oftentimes associates, are required to follow the orders of higher-ranking members, often referred to as "direct orders."

According to court documents, David Mitchamore, aka "Super Dave," an ABT member, and his girlfriend, Christie Rochelle Brown, were murdered by Brent Stalsby as a result of a "direct order" issued by ABT member Carl Carver because of Mitchamore's failure to repay an outstanding debt he allegedly owed to an Aryan Brotherhood general. The bodies of Mitchamore and Brown were discovered in Nacogdoches County on Aug. 10, 2007. Terry Stalsby was present when the "direct order," issued by Carver, was delivered to Frazier. On May 25, 2011, Brent Stalsby was sentenced to life in federal prison and Terry Stalsby was sentenced to 162 months in federal prison.
