BEAUMONT, TX (KTRE) - Two men charged with capital murder in the 2007 Etoile slayings have now been indicted for federal firearms violations, according to a press release.
Charles Cameron Frazier, 28, of Lufkin, and Brent Stalsby, 28, of Nacogdoches appeared Friday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Earl S. Hines to be formally charged with being felons in possession of a firearm.
According to the indictment, an investigation determined that on Aug. 10, 2007, Frazier and Stalsby had been in possession of a Winchester 12-gauge shotgun. Further investigation revealed that both Frazier and Stalsby had prior felony convictions. Frazier was convicted in Nacogdoches County in 2003 for delivery of a controlled substance and in Angelina County in 2003 for aggravated assault of a public servant. Stalsby had two convictions in 2005 in Nacogdoches County; one for possession of chemicals with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and one for possession of a prohibited substance.
As convicted felons, both are prohibited by federal law from owning or possessing firearms or ammunition. If convicted, they face up to 10 years in federal prison.
