Murder Suspect Arraigned In Gilmer

An East Texas teenager was formally arraigned on murder charges today, in connection with the brutal killing of a Union Grove man. 17 year old Brandon Morgan of Gladewater is being held in the Upshur county jail on one-million dollars bail. Investigators say Morgan broke into 62 year old James Evans' house in Union Grove on Tuesday, killed him, and then stole his truck.

Now, even though he is charged with capitol murder, Morgan will not face the death penalty because of his age. He could still face life in prison without parole.
