ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) – Officials with the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department say a man has been indicted in connection with the 2009 killing of 28-year-old Carla Michelle Fuqua of Piedmont.
Fuqua went missing from her home in October 2009. Cold case investigators found her body in December 2012 in a wooded area near her home. Dental records were used to identify the remains.
The Anniston Star reported Friday that a Calhoun County grand jury has indicted 52-year-old Jimmy Ray Steed of Piedmont on a murder charge in connection with her killing.
It was not immediately known whether Steed had an attorney. He was being held in the Calhoun County jail on a $300,000 bond. A court hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 17.
