LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

An Angelina County grand jury indicted a Lufkin man for capital murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon when it met earlier this month.

Kevin Jabbar McKelvey, 37, is accused of shooting and killing his ex-girlfriend and her daughter in an ambush-style attack on Aug. 4. McKelvey is still being held in the Angelina County Jail. Collectively, his bail has been set at $150,000.

The Angelina County District Attorney's Office released the list of grand jury indictments Tuesday. McKelvey's indictment was among the 43 indictments handed down by the grand jury.

The double murder occurred in the Cedar Grove community. Teresa Hoyle had three children. In addition to Shaunika Hoyle, her twin 9-year-old daughters were in the car with her when she was shot.

Angelina County sheriff Greg Sanches said Teresa Hoyle and her daughter pulled up to the mother's house in the 100 block of Charlton Rd. in a car driven by an unknown man. McKelvey allegedly used a rifle to shoot and kill Shaunika Hoyle when she entered the house.

At that point, McKelvey allegedly went outside and shot Teresa Hoyle through the passenger window, Sanches said. Teresa Hoyle was struck in the head by the gunfire, and the driver of the car rushed her to Lufkin Memorial Hospital. However, she was pronounced on arrival at the hospital.

The twin girls suffered minor injuries from glass fragments. However, they are now in the custody of a family member.

At the urging of his family members, McKelvey turned himself in at the Angelina County Sheriff's Office on the evening of Aug. 5. If he is convicted of the capital murder charge, he faces either life in prison or the death sentence.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice records show that McKelvey has two prior convictions on his record. On Feb. 17, 1995, a Nacogdoches County jury convicted him for attempted murder and sentenced him to 14 years in prison.

McKelvey was released on parole on June 18, 2003. His parole supervision ended on Oct. 31, 2008.

The Angelina County grand jury also indicted Cameron Dwayne Basham, 17, of Lufkin, for injury to a child, which is a state-jail felony. Basham was booked into the Angelina County Jail on Nov. 14 and was released later that day after he posted a $2,500 bail.

Basham allegedly sold an "experimental drug" to a 14-year-old student who passed the drug on to two more 14-year-olds.

he last teen wound up spending the night in a Lufkin hospital after he had an immediate and severe reaction to the drug. According to the arrest affidavit, the third 14-year-old began to hallucinate and his pupils dilated. In addition, his heart rate sped up to the point that his parents took him to the hospital.
