GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – Authorities in Alabama said three people were arrested in connection to the killing of a man, whose body was found in a shallow grave.
News outlets reported 33-year-old Dale McKee, 26-year-old Aprille Smith and 28-year-old Dylan Smith were charged Tuesday with murder in the death of 35-year-old Mark Wayne Motley Jr.
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office said Motley was killed by blunt force trauma and his body was found Monday. Authorities declined to comment on a suspected motive for the slaying but said Motley, McKee, Aprille Smith and Dylan Smith were acquaintances.
It’s unclear whether the trio have attorneys.
