KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - Three people have been indicted in the death of a Kilgore man.
Charles Levi Morrow, 31, Keith McWilliams, 49, and Rhonda Joy Bloom, 42, were indicted Feb. 18 in a Brewster County court on first-degree murder charges, according to the Brewster County District Clerk's office.
The group was arrested in December. The three are suspected in the death of former Kilgore ISD coach Trey Sands, who went missing while on a hunting trip in Alpine, about 80 miles from the Texas-Mexico border. Sands graduated from Kilgore High School in 2005.
According to details revealed in indictments, Bloom "intentionally aided and abetted" in Sands' murder by cleaning and washing the crime scene to remove blood and burying his body in a different location than where he had been killed. Morrow is accused of stabbing Sands with a knife and striking him with an object while McWilliams is suspected of stabbing and shooting him.
They are each being held on $200,000 bond while they wait to be arraigned.
Kara Sands, Sands' sister, posted about the indictments Friday on Facebook:
"Thank you, Lord! The Grand Jury indicted all three for first-degree murder! THANK YOU to the Texas Rangers, Brewster County Sheriff Ronny Dodson, and District Attorney Rod Ponton for their diligence and hard work. Also, thank you to Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin, County Commissioner Mike Pusleyand Jennifer Dragoo Smiley for their help at home. Please keep all of them in your prayers.
My parents and I will be attending the arraignment hearing next month- it'll be our first time actually seeing the people who killed our Trey, so please keep the prayers coming. We still have a long way to go, but we're one step closer and we're confident that justice will be served to those responsible for murdering Trey. Thank you again for all your prayers and support. God bless you all."
