7 Eyewitness News Staff

It will likely be months before we find how Hardeman County mother Jo Ann Bain and her 14- year-old daughter, Adrienne were killed.

That is because a judge has sealed the findings of their autopsies. Investigators believe on April 27, Adams Mayes killed JoAnn in a detached garage near the home before kidnapping the two youngest Bain daughters.

Mayes' wife, Teresa faces first degree murder and kidnapping charges, while his mother, Mary Frances faces four conspiracy charges.

Each are scheduled to appear before a Hardeman County judge on May 22.
