One of the two primary suspects named in a double homicide out of east Lubbock County now  stands indicted for felon in possession of a firearm.  Tuesday, a Lubbock County Grand Jury decided there is enough evidence to send Casey Ledbetter, 37 to trail on the charge.

Ledbetter remains jailed on a $100,000 bond. On Friday, the Lubbock county sheriff named Ledbetter a suspect in the deaths of Joanie Parker and her son Derek Hale.  Their bodies were discovered on a vacant property southeast of Idalou in late May.

Authorities also named Meredith Ledbetter, 28 as a suspect in the deaths.  She remains jailed on a forgery charge.

Investigators believe that possible charges could be present in relation to the Idalou case this week.
