Woman arrested in murder of Union County woman

UNION COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) An arrest has been made in connection to the murder of a woman, shot and left on the side of the road.

Union County Deputies say Laura Blair of Knoxville played a part in the death of Lisa Young one week ago.

Young was shot, then her body was dumped at the Intersection of Highway 370 and Little Bull Run Road in Union County last week.
Blair's facing aggravated kidnapping and felony murder charges. She makes her first court appearance Friday morning.

Detectives say they have three more suspects but aren't arresting them until they're further along in the investigation.
