GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Harrison County Grand Jury has indicted five people in the slaying of a 29-year-old woman whose burned body was found in the Biloxi River.

Media outlets report that 35-year-old Joshua Peterman, 35-year-old Kari Parker and 19-year-old Devin Gregory were each indicted on a first-degree murder charge for the October 2015 death of Tena Marie Broadus. Forty-two-year-old Natasha Sellers and 31-year-old Aaron Bobinger were indicted on a charge of accessory after the fact of murder.

Broadus‘ mother reported her missing Sept. 25, 2015. Her remains were found burned and dumped in the Biloxi River a week later.

Prosecutor Herman Cox says Peterman believed Broadus was going to “snitch” about him to police. He says Peterman and Parker killed Broadus with a knife before burning and dumping the remains.
