LUFKIN, Texas (AP) — Guns believed used in the slayings of an East Texas couple earlier this year have been recovered from a pond not far from the home where four of the people charged in the case lived.

A defense lawyer in the case says 18-year-old Cameron Westfall led authorities to the weapons believed used to kill 34-year-old Nathan Maddox and his 30-year-old wife, Krystal. Westfall, his parents and sister are charged in the January slayings in front of a church near Colmesneil in Tyler County. They've all pleaded not guilty.

The couple was ambushed while on a court-allowed visit with Nathan Maddox's 5-year-old daughter who had been living with the Westfall family.

Beaumont attorney Jonathan Stovall tells The Lufkin Daily News (http://bit.ly/1grjOCi ) the weapons could be the strongest evidence against the family.
