Selma Man and Two Juveniles Charged in Homicide

An adult and two juveniles are behind bars tonight — charged in the death of a Selma man.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson says 20 year old Kachavias Jones — a 17 year old juvenile — and a 16 year old juvenile — all of Selma — were arraigned in court Wednesday.

Jackson says the trio plotted to kill 24 year old Marquel Woods. He says Woods was shot about a week ago — then his body was burned.

“They used gasoline to set the body on fire,” said Jackson.

“I mean it was a grisly situation, horrible crime for the victim’s family to know about this. Of course, it’s just a tragic situation.”

Jackson says the two juveniles will have preliminary hearings on December 4th.

He says a preliminary hearing for Jones has been set for December 19th.
