ATTALLA, Ala. – An Etowah County grand jury has indicted two Atalla men on charges of murder and mutilation of a corpse in the death of a teenager whose body was found in a freezer.
District Attorney Jimmie Harp said a $250,000 cash bond was set for the suspects, 22-year-old Troy Andrew Smiley and 19-year-old Nathaniel Wayne Lee.
Lee is in the Etowah County jail, while Smiley is in the Lee County jail after a probation revocation hearing Thursday about an unrelated drug arrest.
Both were indicted in the death of 15-year-old Jeffery Blake Stone, whose body was found at Lee's residence July 1. Stone, a student at Sardis School, was reported missing after he was last seen March 24
