A suspect charged in connection to a July, 2001, murder was back in a Miller County courtroom this week. Tabatha Mae Carter, now 53-years-old, appeared in custody for a case review hearing which was continued until April 8th. Carter is charged with being an accessory to first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting of Jerry Jeffries while at a bar in Brumley. At the current time, Carter is being represented by a public defender. Carter also has scheduled court dates on Monday of this next week in Morgan County and then on April 6th in Polk County for probation violations on original felony bad check charges. In the Jeffries murder case, Carter allegedly admitted to being part of the murder while naming another person, who is now dead, as being the one who pulled the trigger.
