Two men have been indicted on murder charges in the death of an Alabama teenager whose body was found in the Tennessee River more than two years ago.

A local news outlet reports that 56-year-old Eugene Defredrick Collyear and 19-year-old Chandler Demetrius Herring were charged in the death of 17-year-old Rose Ellen Jones. Jones’ body was found in the river in August 2017 more than a week after she was reported missing.
