BREAKING NEWS: Suspects charged with capital murder in death of Nederland man

BREAKING NEWS: Angel San Juan has learned Nederland Police have two people in custody charged with the capital murder of Michael Legg.

The 40-year-old was found dead in his house on Beauxart Garden Road on May 9.

The two suspects are identified as 23-year-old Duane Owens and 24 year old Ashlie Martinez. A judge denied bond.

Police arrested both Wednesday in Beaumont during a SWAT operation in Beaumont’s south end. Beaumont officers arrested the pair on an unrelated family assault felony charge.

Nederland investigators have not released a motive pending further investigation, and more arrests are possible.

STATEMENT FROM LISA LEGG ANDERSON, LEGG’S SISTER:

“Our family would like to thank all law enforcement agencies that worked diligently in the investigation of my brother’s case. We will continue to pray and trust in the judicial system to punish these people to the fullest extent of the law. We would also like to thank everyone who has supported us during this time.”
