2 MEN INDICTED IN DEATH OF ALABAMA TEEN FOUND DEAD IN 2017

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – Two men have been indicted on murder charges in the death of an Alabama teenager whose body was found in the Tennessee River more than two years ago.

WHNT-TV reports that 56-year-old Eugene Defredrick Collyear and 19-year-old Chandler Demetrius Herring were charged in the death of 17-year-old Rose Ellen Jones.

Jones’ body was found in the river in August 2017 more than a week after she was reported missing.

Authorities arrested Collyear and Herring in early 2018. Collyear remains in the Madison County Jail on a $52,500 bond, while court records show Herring was released on bond.
