Arrests Made In Rusk County Murder

An East Texas couple has been arrested and charged with murder, in the case of a body found last week in Rusk County. Jarrett and Lisa Murray of New London were taken into custody by Rusk County Sheriff's investigators yesterday. The couple is charged in connection with the death of Joseph Michael Douglas, 21, of Gladewater.

His remains were found on May 2nd off of County Road 106, eight miles north of Henderson. Investigators say Douglas died of a gunshot wound, and that his body had been at the location for about two weeks. Authorities are looking into what the motive was.

"We've got some information leading to possible motives. We're trying to follow that at this time. We still have some evidence to recover here. We're working on that. We have our suspicions. We just need to make it fact," said Lt. Johnny Davidson of the Rusk County Sheriffs Office.

The Murrays are being held on $100,000 bond each.
