Several people are facing murder charges following this week’s meeting of the Roane County grand jury.
District Attorney General Russell Johnson said Shawn Smoot was indicted for first-degree murder in the death of Brooke Morris.
Her body was found at Blair Road and Old Blair Road last October. Morris, 23, was shot to death.
Authorities quickly named Smoot, a Knoxville insurance agent, as a person of interest.
Sheriff Jack Stockton said authorities took their time in the investigation to make sure “we cover all our bases.”
