Murder Charges Dropped Against Rusk Couple

A Rusk County couple originally arrested for the murder of a Henderson man, have been cleared of the charges.   Murder charges against Jarrett and Lisa Murray of New London were dropped on Friday. The Murrays were originally charged in a shooting death involving a body that was found north of Henderson.   The Murrays were charged with the shooting death of Joseph Michael Douglas, 21, whose decomposed body was found May 2nd by a local man riding his four-wheeler off Rusk County Road 106 about nine miles northwest of Henderson. 

Investigators say Douglas died of a gunshot wound, and that his body had been at the location for about two weeks.   Not enough evidence was presented against the couple, and the case remains under investigation.
