LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Angelina County grand jury indicted a 20-year-old Lufkin man in connection to the June 12 shooting death of Albert Hodge, 60. Rakeem Levon Rhodes was among the 40 indictments handed down by the jury.
The Angelina County District Attorney's Office released the list of grand jury indictments Friday.
Rhodes is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on capital murder charge. His bail has been set at $500,000.
East Texas law enforcement authorities tracked Rhodes down at an apartment at Oakhill Plaza Drive on June 24. Deputies from the Nacogdoches Sheriff's Office and U.S. Marshal surrounded the building, and Rhodes was taken into custody without further incident.
East Texas News obtained a copy of the arrest warrant Monday afternoon. According to the affidavit, two LPD officers responded to a 911 call about shots fired at a residence in the 700 block of Weaver Street late in the evening of June 12.
When the LPD officers arrived on the scene, they found the home's front door standing open. One of the officers found Hodge lying on the floor with several obvious wounds to his face, chest, and arms.
"Hodge was gasping for air and appeared incoherent," the affidavit stated.
The grand jury list also included the following indictments.
