JACKSON, Tenn. - The Madison County Grand Jury convened, Monday. Among the cases they heard, the first degree murder case against Caleb Mullins, 19, of Louisville, Ky.
The teen was indicted on counts of first degree murder, felony murder, theft and tampering with evidence in the November death of his aunt, Karen Mullins, 43.
Caleb Mullins was arrested in Louisville on Nov. 12, 2012. Police believe he killed his aunt on the Saturday before, stole her SUV and drove it to Kentucky. He fought extradition for months before voluntarily returning to West Tennessee.
Karen Mullins was found stabbed to death inside her north Jackson home after her twin sister called police worried when she did not answer her calls. Caleb was living with her at the time of her death.
He remains jailed in the Madison County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond. Mullins will make his next court appearance, where he will be officially charged with the new counts, Monday.
