MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Two people face charges in the 2011 slayings of a man and a woman in Henry County.
Henry County Sheriff Lane Perry tells media outlets that a special grand jury indicted 21-year-old Darius Taylor on capital murder, robbery and firearms charges. Twenty-year-old Kayla Mae Bowman was indicted on charges of carjacking and concealing or compounding evidence of a felony.
The grand jury handed up the indictments Monday.
The charges stem from the deaths of 31-year-old Amanda Ann Massey and 33-year-old Robert Walker Lawrence, both of Martinsville. Their bodies were found inside a car that was set on fire in the Bassett area.
Bowman is being held without bond at the Henry County Sheriff's Office. Younger is serving a sentence in Virginia but Perry didn't say whee.
