Campbell – A writ of habeas corpus has been filed in connection with a Campbell murder. James Ray Brown Jr., charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of his wife, is now seeking the appointment of an attorney. Brown is being held at the Hunt County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond on a count of murder involving the death of his wife, Avis Baker Brown. James Brown reportedly told investigators he had mistaken his wife for an intruder last Saturday, although the shooting allegedly occurred following a domestic disturbance.
