WACO, Texas (AP) — A 25-year-old Waco man was arrested and charged with retaliating against a potential witness in his brother's capital murder trial.

Tyrece Edward Richards was in Williamson County Jail in Georgetown on Monday charged with retaliation and various weapons and misrepresentation charges. Bond was set at $583,000. Jail records did not list an attorney.

His brother, Ricky Cummings, was sentenced to death earlier this this month in the shooting deaths of two people. The Waco Tribune-Herald (http://bit.ly/UajEoH) reports Richards has been wanted since June for alleged retaliation.

Before the trial, two women associated with Cummings were charged with retaliating against a witness. During the trial, a relative was arrested on a charge of witness tampering.
