A total of $1 million was set for bonds for a Lampasas man accused in a murder-for-hire plot.
A Lampasas man was indicted on charges of soliciting the murders of the Lampasas police chief and an ex-wife, according to a news release.
On Thursday, a Coryell County grand jury indicted Troy Neville, 45, on two counts of solicitation of murder, a first-degree felony punishable by five to 99 years in jail.
Neville solicited two people to try and murder his ex-wife, Rebecca Neville, and her sister Sammy Bailey, who is the chief of police for the Lampasas Police Department, according to a release from Coryell County District Attorney Dusty Boyd.
The Texas Rangers investigation was initiated in August following a confidential tip, according to the release.
