James Calvert - Suspect
Smith County

James Calvert, 41, is now jailed in Smith County after Tyler Police officers traveled to Monroe, La., to bring the suspect back to Tyler, where he faces a capital murder charge.

Calvert, who is accused of gunning down his ex-wife and kidnapping the couple’s 4-year-old son, was arrested in West Monroe, La., after an Amber Alert was issued.

30-year old Jelena Radovanovic  Sriraman was shot to death at her Tyler home on Oct. 31.

4-year-old Lucas Calvert was found safe, in the back seat of the car Calvert was driving.

Police in West Monroe pulled Calvert over after he took off from police during a routine traffic stop. A short high-speed chase ensued and police had to break a car window to get him out of the car.

Several weapons were recovered by officers at the scene.

Calvert is being held on a $25 million bond.
