[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

PALESTINE, Texas » Six people were killed at a Texas campsite and a suspect has been arrested and charged in the weekend homicides, authorities said today.

Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor said the bodies were found in rural Anderson County, southeast of Dallas.

William Hudson, 33, is charged with one murder count and is being held on $2.5 million bond. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

Authorities have not yet revealed a motive for the slayings or said how the people were killed. They also haven’t released the victims’ names and ages.

The bodies of a man and a woman were found Sunday in a travel trailer at a campsite next to the suspect’s residence, according to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office. Four males initially thought missing were found dead this afternoon in a pond on the suspect’s property.

One woman survived.
