50-year-old Tangela Louise Parker and 62-year-old Eric Carroll Parker, both of Taylorsville, were arrested and charged in the case. They were on the run for six months before being captured in Phoenix, Arizona, as previously reported on WHKY.

Tangela Parker was served with a true bill of indictment for one count of murder and Eric Parker was served with a true bill of indictment for one count of accessory after the fact.

Tangela Parker was reportedly granted a $250,000 bond in Catawba County Superior Court Wednesday (September 8). Eric Parker’s bond was reduced from $600,000 to $125,000 on Thursday. Both suspects remained in jail as of earlier today (September 10).
