A McLennan County inmate who was arrested for capital murder has been released from jail as Waco police continue to investigate the alleged crime.

Danny Lee Byrd Jr. and Texavia Rashun Ervin were arrested for the shooting death of Leslie David Lee. Lee was murdered Oct. 26, 2013 in the 2500 block of Ethel Ave., in what police say was an apparent drug deal gone bad.

Ervin was released from jail Friday, May 2, but Byrd remains behind bars on a parole hold.

McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna says the direction of the investigation has changed since the two men were arrested.

In a mutual agreement, the DA's Office and Waco PD determined this case needs to be investigated further before it's presented to a grand jury.
