Woman in Tennessee jail charged in death of missing man

Authorities say a woman arrested on a warrant for joyriding has been charged in the death of a man whose body was found in a barrel in Tennessee.

News outlets report 25-year-old NaKayla Sullivan is charged with criminal homicide in the death of 30-year-old Thomas Rogers.

The Bledsoe County man was reported missing April 19. An officer found his body on Tuesday.

Bledsoe Sheriff Jimmy Morris tells the Chattanooga Times Free Press that Sullivan and two other suspects in custody knew the dead man. District Attorney General Mike Taylor says the investigation continues. It's unclear if Sullivan has a lawyer.
