Judge sets new bonds for 3 accused in Zavalla couple's deaths

WOODVILLE, TX (KTRE) - A district judge has set new $1 million bonds for three family members accused in the January 2014 shooting death of a Zavalla couple.

District court records show Judge Belinda Gibbs-Walker set the $1 million bonds for Paul, Letha and Kristen Westfall on charges of capital murder. The three already had $1 million bonds for a previous charge of first-degree engaging in organized criminal activity, putting each of their collective bonds at $2 million.

Nathan and Krystal Maddox were gunned down in the parking lot of Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Tyler County on January 18, 2104. The couple was shot following a supervised visitation with the 5-year-old daughter of Nathan Maddox.

The indictments state Paul, Letha and Kristen Westfall shot Nathan and Krystal Maddox with a firearm, causing them to die. It states Cameron Westfall hid a shotgun, rifle, duct tape, shotgun shells, rifle cartridges and gloves during the sheriff's office's investigation into the deaths.

Cameron Westfall is charged with first-degree engaging in organized criminal activity and two counts of tampering with evidence.

A pre-trial for the three charged with capital murder is set for May 12  and their trial is scheduled to begin on Aug. 8.
