JOAQUIN, TX (KSLA/KTRE) -
A Texas couple captured in Montgomery County Friday in connection with a violent crime spree that included triple shooting at a Joaquin motel on Friday have now been charged.
42-year-old Bobby Grubbs was wanted in connection with the Friday morning shooting of three employees at the Country Inn Motel in Joaquin. Grubbs, along with wife, Deedra was also wanted in connection with a home invasion and burglary in Montgomery County earlier in the week.
Both were arrested Friday afternoon in Montgomery County, following a short pursuit in one of the shooting victim's vehicles.
Bobby Grubbs has been charged with retaliation in Montgomery County, aggravated robbery in Harris County, and Capital murder in Shelby County. Deedra Grubs has been charged with burglary of a habitation.
Shelby County Sheriff Newton Johnson says Deedra Grubbs was present when the motel when three motel employees, all housekeepers, were shot in the head. One woman was pronounced dead at the scene. She is identified as Martha Soceredoi, 37.
Johnson says two remarkably survived the shooting including Sam Watts, a beloved figure in the town of Joaquin. Deputies say Watts is a long time city employee. Shelby County Sheriff Newton Johnson says Watts is in fair condition at LSUHSC.
An official on the scene says the Grubbs were staying at the motel, and left behind their own vehicle following the shooting. He added that money was missing and it appears that robbery was the motive behind the fatal shooting.
Authorities in Montgomery County responded to a burglary and assault Wednesday, where a woman, who they identified as Deedra Grubbs, knocked on the door of a home where she was previously employed as a housekeeper and began chatting with the homeowner.
Officials say a man then forced his way into the home and both suspects assaulted the homeowner, tied her up and stole weapons and jewelry. Montgomery County authorities have since identified that man as Bobby Grubbs.
Area schools took precautions in wake of Friday's shooting.
Joaquin ISD Superintendent Phil Worsham says the campus, which is less than a half-mile from the motel, was placed on lockdown since shortly after 9:00 a.m. All students remained in their classrooms and all the doors and gates were locked until the all-clear was given and students were let out on time Friday afternoon. Carthage schools were placed on alert, but not locked down.
