Longview — After a Longview murder suspect with prior convictions for attempted murder, aggravated assault and attempted kidnapping posted bail two days after witnesses said he shot and killed an unarmed man, the Gregg County District Attorney’s Office asked a judge to increase the amount of the bond or add conditions to the release.
