Joshua Haliburton and Tripp Bird were each indicted this week on charges of murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, accident involving death and accident involving serious bodily injury. The indictments are formal charges and are not considered evidence of guilt.


Previously published reports show that police contend Haliburton and Bird were involved in a wreck on July 29, 2016 in which Jennifer Russell was injured. The crash occurred on FM 691 near La Cima Road. Russell was hospitalized following the wreck and then released. She died in December and authorities said they would have to wait on autopsy reports to determine if her death was directly related to the wreck.


Neither Haliburton nor Bird show to have an attorney of record in the Grayson County court records.
