NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has charged four suspects a Bedford County homicide.
The arrests came Friday and Saturday in the Aug. 8 killing of Larry Walls, who was 55. His body was found inside his ransacked home in Unionville. His wife called the Bedford County Sheriff to report the crime.
TBI agents arrested 20-year-old Sean Gearhardt and 25-year-old Jason Starrick of Nashville on Friday night, charging them with one count each of criminal homicide. The victim's daughter, 27-year-old Dawn Walls and his wife, 54-year-old Susan Walls, were both charged Saturday with one count each of criminal responsibility to commit homicide.
Agents said Susan and Dawn Walls agreed to pay Gearhardt and Starrick $400 to kill Larry Walls.
All four suspects await a Thursday court appearance.
