According to KLTV, Pearce and two women — Laurie Perry and Rebecca Bond — are accused of killing 62-year-old Luis Martinez, then setting his body on fire near the Antioch Cemetery in Smith County.

Perry and Bond were caught, but cops say Pearce made a run for it after crashing his truck into a tree Thursday during a wild chase.
