SHELBY COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - A Joaquin man suspected in the death of a Joaquin woman has been charged with murder.

Ethan Myers, 26, of Joaquin was arrested Monday in connection with the death of Sarah Hopson, 36, of Joaquin. Hopson was found dead in her home Sunday after Shelby County sheriff’s deputies conducted a welfare check. The deputies said they saw a white male exiting the property upon their arrival. After an investigation and search, Myers was found and initially charged with resisting arrest. An autopsy on Hopson was ordered, but the cause of death has not yet been determined.

Two additional arrests were made Monday in connection with the incident. Teresa Louviere and Allen Price have both been charged with tampering with evidence.

Myers has since been arraigned and is now being held on a $1.25 million total bond for the murder and evading arrest charges.

Louviere and Price have a $250,000 bond each for their individual charges of tampering with evidence.
