Two people held in the murder of a couple killed in a Spicewood home May 15 were indicted last week by a Burnet Countygrand jury.
Juston Aaron Curbow, 34, HorseshoeBay, was indicted on a charge of first-degree felony arson with intent to damage a habitat or a place of worship and Melissa Frink, 34, of Brownwood, was indicted on a charge of third-degree felony, tampering with/fabrication of physical evidence. Both remain in Burnet County jail.
A third suspect, Gregory Mark Currie, 30, Cedar Town, Ga., who was originally charged with capital murder in the case, was found hanged to death in his isolation jail cell on May 18.
The victims, Dorrina Ruth Reese, 42, and Thomas Edward Wells, 30, were renting the home in Spicewood and were found after firefighters responded to a blaze at the house at 208 CR 425.
In an arrest warrant affidavit, authorities said Curbow told them Currie shot the man and woman after an argument.
The indictment said Curbow poured the gasoline on the floor and lit the floor on fire knowing Reese and Wills remained inside the house.
If convicted, Curbow could receive up to 99 years or life in prison.
Frink’s indictment stated she "knowingly and intentionally destroyed fingerprints with intent to impair their legibility or availability as evidence in the investigation.”
If convicted, she could receive up to 10 years in prison.
