$25M bond set for East Texan accused of killing ex

Posted: Updated:

TYLER, Texas (AP) - Bond has been raised to $25 million for an East Texas man captured in Louisiana and charged with killing his ex-wife and fleeing with their 4-year-old son.

Smith County jail records show James Calvert of Tyler was being held Tuesday on a capital murder charge a day after being indicted.

Tyler police on Monday transported Calvert from West Monroe, La., where father and son were located last Thursday. The boy was not harmed following a chase that left the Calvert vehicle wrecked.

The boy's mother, Jelena Sriraman, was found shot to death a day earlier in Tyler.

Calvert was initially detained on $2 million bond, waived extradition and was booked Monday on the higher bond into the jail in Tyler, about 190 miles west of West Monroe, La.
