42-year-old Clenard Parker of Chappell Hill was indicted today (Tuesday) by the Washington County Grand Jury on two counts of Capital Murder, three counts of Aggravated Assault, Evading Arrest, Criminal Mischief, and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle.

Parker is accused of intentionally crashing a stolen 18-wheeler into the DPS Office. Fourteen people were inside the building at the time, and six were hospitalized. Two of those victims, 78-year-old Bobby Huff of Giddings and 63-year-old Cheryl Turner of Brenham, passed away as a result of their injuries.

Parker remains in custody at the Washington County Jail.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office has hired a Special Prosecutor, Lisa Tanner, to assist in the prosecution of the case. Tanner previously worked for the Brazos County District Attorney’s Office and served as the Chief of the Major Offenders and Violent Crimes Section at the Attorney General’s Office before starting her own practice assisting prosecutors in small offices handling high-profile homicides. The District Attorney's Office says she has extensive experience in handling Capital Murder cases across the State of Texas.
