Today the Sheriff’s Office announced Murder warrants have been obtained for Casey and Merideth Ledbetter for the murder of Joanie Parker last month. Additional evidence is still being collected so that the Ledbetter’s can be charged in the death of Parker’s son, Derek Hale.


Both suspects have been served their warrants and remain jailed under a $500,000 bond each. They have admitted to killing both Parker and Hale. They claim that Hale stole from them, and that they didn't initially intend to kill him. The Sheriff's Office says they are confident that murder warrants in Hale's death will be obtainable.
