BEAUMONT, Texas — A man police accused in two different murders in two years is sentenced to four years in prison after the murder charges in both cases were dropped.
Jared Javon Bias was charged with capital murder in the deaths of Kera Teel and her unborn child in 2017, but investigators later determined he was not involved in their shooting deaths and he never went to trial.
Bias received a plea deal Monday morning. He pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. The murder charge related to Nixon’s death was dropped as part of the deal and he received the four-year sentence.
Michael “Mike C” Anthony Corbin was sentenced to 15 years in January in connection with Nixon's murder.
