Pollok Man Charged With Murder

Eric Parnell Eric Parnell

An 18 year old Garrison woman is dead and another woman injured after an incident on Highway 69 early Sunday morning.

Authorities say the incident started at the Polk's store on Highway 69 at about 4:45 a.m.

According to officials, 18 year old Anna Franklin of Garrison and 27 year old Jennifer Holiday of Lufkin had left the store and were traveling north on Highway 69 toward Highway 7 when 31 year old Eric Parnell of Pollok pulled up beside the two women and fired a shot.

That's when, sheriff's department officials say the women pulled over and Parnell approached the vehicle and fired another shot.

Anna Franklin was killed at the scene. Holiday received a shotgun wound to her arm.

Authorities say Holiday was then taken by Parnell to his residence where he held her hostage until he finally let her call the sheriff's office.

Parnell was taken into custody and no bond has been set for him at this time. He has been charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault and kidnapping.

Officials say Parnell gave a statement to them saying he was angry with the women because they did not speak favorably to him at Polk's.
