LONGVIEW, Texas -- Two people have been charged in the fatal beating of an East Texas man who allegedly tried to recover some of his stolen items.

Gregg County Jail records show Sarah Haslam and Daniel Paul Jones of Longview were being held Friday on capital murder and aggravated kidnapping charges. Haslam s bond was $1.3 million. Jones is jailed on $1.35 million bond.

Online records did not list attorneys for the pair charged Thursday a day after the body of Ronnie Gammage of Longview was found in Upshur County.

Gammage was mugged Nov. 29 and told Longview police that his wallet was stolen. Haslam and Jones later allegedly tried but failed to cash a $400 check from Gammage, who apparently paid to get some items returned.

Relatives reported him missing Dec. 4.
