ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A neighbor said he heard "bangs" at his Rivercrest neighbor's house but didn't think anything of it, on the day a man was arrested for killing his girlfriend and another couple.

According to a probably cause affidavit released on Sunday, Angelina County Sheriff's Investigator Seth Stover walked into a home on Brazos Boulevard and found Lisa Zumwalt sitting slumped over in a chair with a single gunshot wound to the head. On the floor several feet away was Douglas Ashley who also appeared to have been shot in the head and lying on top of Sherry Wood's head.

Raymond Wilson II, 45, is accused in the Dec. 13 deaths of the three and is charged with capital murder.

According to the affidavit, a neighbor said the three had been barbecuing and drinking beer for much of the day and at around 7 p.m. he heard some "bangs" come from his neighbor's house but did not think anything of it.

He then said he heard Wilson's truck start, then die, then start again, before driving away. The neighbor said he knew it was Wilson's truck because he hears it every day. He also said Wilson drove away faster than usual.

Stover then went to the deputy car in which Wilson was apprehended in and had him step out of the car where observed blood on Wilson's person and clothes.
