Woman indicted for 2006 murder of husband in Monroe County

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A Knoxville woman has been indicted for killing her husband in 2006 in Monroe County.

Martha Ann McClancy, 64, is charged with First Degree Murder and Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder.

TBI Special Agents began investigating McClancy in November 2012.

On May 15, 2006, Monroe County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call at the family's home on Unicoi Lake Road in Tellico Plains.

They found the body of Martha Ann's husband, Robert McClancy. He had a pistol in one hand and a bottle of pills in the other. Investigators did not find a gunshot wound on his body.

On December 20, 2012, agents took a statement from Charles
Kaczmarczyk. He told investigators that he and Martha Ann McClancy, who married Charles after her husband's death and
took his name, conspired to kill Robert by overdosing him with prescription medicine.

Charles Kaczmarczyk pleaded guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder in September 2013. The woman has since filed for divorce and dropped Kaczmarczyk's name.

On November 6, 2013, the Monroe County Grand Jury returned indictments for Martha Ann McClancy. But she was in federal prison on fraud-related charges.

Upon her recent release, she was transported to the Monroe County Jail, where, at the time of this release, she was being held on $100,000 bond.
