According to the Longview News-Journal, La Toya Nicole Reese, 28, and her 11-year-old daughter, Mya Rosetta Nichol Sebron, were each killed in their bedrooms from gunshot wounds. La Toya Reese was shot once in the head, while her daughter was shot multiple times.
No arrests have been made in the case, though Longview police spokeswoman Kristie Brian has said investigators have identified a person of interest in connection with the deaths. Police have not yet identified the person of interest.
On Friday, Reese’s ex-husband, Joushal O’Steven Reese, 31, was arrested for burglary of a habitation. The couple divorced on Aug. 28, court records stated. An arrest warrant filed by Longview Police indicates that Joushal Reese, on Sept. 5, entered the Young Street apartment of his previous wife, Tawanna Reese. The arrest warrant further stated that Tawanna Reese told the officer her ex-husband Joushal Reese entered her apartment without permission, took her 46-inch television and some clothing he kept at her home.
During a previous interview last Monday, Joushal Reese told police that Tawana Reese had threatened both him and his ex-wife La Toya Reese on Facebook and on voicemail. Tawana Reese had also threatened to put him in jail, he stated. Joushal Reese was booked into the Gregg County Jail on Friday, where he remains on a $100,000 bond.
