MORGAN COUNTY — Authorities held Ronald Blowers, 25, Thursday in connection with the killing of Wayne and Mabel Wells in rural Morgan County. But Blowers, of Morgan County, does not yet face any charges for the crime.

A Morgan County judge is keeping Blowers on a high bond amount for a previous parole violation warrant while the investigation into the Wells' deaths continues.

Morgan County Sheriff Jim Petty refused comment Thursday, but told KOMU 8 News investigators spent the day looking for a murder weapon at the crime scene.
