Woman arrested for cold murder case in Miller County
MILLER COUNTY - Deputies arrested a woman for a murder case on Monday more than 18 years after the crime happened.
In July 2001, law enforcement found the body of Jerry Jeffries at Mill Creek Lounge, and determined he'd died from a gunshot wound. Deputies began an investigation with the help of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Lake Area Major Case Squad.
On Monday, investigators arrested Tabatha Carter, 53, after she was detained in Oklahoma on warrants out of Morgan County. She's been charged with being an accessory to murder and being an accessory to armed criminal action. Carter is in the Miller County jail on no bond.
