Man charged in double homicide
An Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy was stopped by a 17 year old male while on patrol at approximately 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning. The subject reported witnessing a homicide that had just occurred at 4574 East Railroad in Vidor. Deputies responding to the scene found the bodies of 27 year old Christina Marie Adams and 40 year old Candy Renee Fox.
Believing the suspect was still at the residence, Orange County SWAT team members were deployed after securing a warrant for 43 year old Martin Edward Fox, a white male. Upon entering the residence, it was found vacant.
The Orange County Homicide Investigation Team (HIT) began investigating the double homicide, once they arrived on the scene.
At 8:28 am, Fox surrendered himself to authorities at the Vidor Police Station. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Orange County Jail where he was booked on two counts of homicide and one count of aggravated assault.
Judge Joe Parkhurst arraigned Fox Monday morning and set bail at two million, fifty thousand dollars. One million for each count of homicide and $50,000 for the aggravated assault charge.
