LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man has entered a plea agreement in his role of marijuana-selling out of his home.

Court records show Marcel Cornelius Montgomery, 35, has entered a written plea agreement. He is charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking offense and felon in possession of a firearm.

A hearing in which the plea takes place has not been set.

His co-defendant, Porsche Denise Davis, 26, of Lufkin, has been ruled competent to stand trial. Jury selection and a trial are set for Dec. 10.

Lufkin Police arrested them on May 20 after responding to a disturbance.

Officers said they discovered approximately two pounds of marijuana and two handguns inside the home.

The marijuana, a .25 caliber handgun, and a box of .380 caliber ammunition were found inside a gym bag, according to police.

Both Davis and Montgomery have prior felony convictions, making them ineligible to possess a firearm.
