Texan Charged with Killing Two, Including Ex-Wife

An East Texas man has been charged with capital murder after his ex-wife and another woman were found shot to death at a home.

Gregg County jail records show 29-year-old Isaiah Christopher Roberts of Tyler was being held Friday with bond set at $2 million.

Roberts was arrested Sunday following a chase after the bodies were discovered at a residence in Longview. Police identified the victims as his former spouse, 38-year-old Chanda Martin, and 35-year-old Kimberly Rayson.

Longview police say a third person in the home suffered minor injuries by breaking out a window to flee during the attack.

Roberts was called before court Thursday. An attorney for Roberts did not immediately return a message Friday.
