A Buffalo, Missouri, woman who was able to elude authorities for more than ten years on probation violation warrants has now been charged in connection to a murder in Miller County. Now 53-year-old Tabitha Mae Carter was picked up late last week in Morgan County where she was held on the probation warrants out of Morgan and Polk Counties. Late Monday afternoon, Carter was formally charged in Miller County with a class-A felony of first-degree accessory to murder and accessory to armed criminal action. Sheriff Louie Gregoire tells KRMS News that Carter had been a person of interest for some time in connection to the shooting death of Jerry Jeffries at the Swinging Bridges Bar on July 23, 2001. So far, there have been no other arrests in the case. Carter has since been transferred and is in the custody of Miller County where she is being held without bond.
