BREAKING: Police Charge Fiance with First Degree Murder

JACKSON, Tenn. – Jackson police have charged Charles Pittman, 21, with first-degree murder and tampering with evidence in connection with the homicide of Olivia Greenlee, 21. Pittman and Greenlee were both students at Union University and lived off campus in Jackson. The two were engaged. Greenlee was found shot to death inside her car in the parking lot of Luther Hall around 7:50 a.m., Wednesday. According to investigators, she died from a single gunshot wound. Pittman, 21, was developed as a person of interest. On Friday evening, investigators met with Pittman and conducted a follow-up interview. Based on their findings, he was taken into custody and booked at the Madison County Jail on an investigative hold. On Saturday afternoon, investigators met with prosecutors and discussed the evidence in the case. They believe evidence shows Pittman shot Greenlee as she sat in her car, Tuesday night. According to officers, Pittman then staged the crime scene to give the appearance that Greenlee had committed suicide. Jackson City Court Judge Blake Anderson will review Pittman’s charges Sunday morning and determine a bond amount. Based on the first degree murder charge, the judge can order Pittman held with no bond. Pittman will be formally arraigned at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18 in Jackson City Court.
