A Hockley County Grand Jury handed down an indictment on the charge of Murder against Payden Shane Allen, 18.
Allen was arrested by Hockley County Sheriff’s Deputies on June 11 in the murder of his father Brandon Allen, 47 at a Nevada Road home in Anton. Brandon Allen was found deceased with a single gunshot wound at the residence, by deputies, conducting a well-fare check.
Payden Allen was located in Lubbock county and questioned by the Texas Rangers in reference to the case. He was then arrested and taken to Lubbock County Detention Center and transferred to the Hockley County Jail. He remained in the Hockley County Jail until last week when bond was reduced to $100,000 by JP Brenda Nock at the recommendation of the District Attorney’s Office.
As a condition of his release, he must reside with his mother in the Houston area.
