GUNTOWN, Miss. (AP) – Police have filed kidnapping charges against the wife of a man suspected of killing a Tennessee woman and her oldest daughter and kidnapping the woman's two youngest daughters.
As an intense manhunt for Adam Mayes and the two young girls continued, his wife, Teresa Mayes, and mother, Mary Mayes, were arraigned in a Hardeman County courtroom on Tuesday.
Mary Mayes was charged with conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
An affidavit states that Teresa Mayes told investigators she drove the mother and daughters from Hardeman County, where they lived, to Union County, Miss.
The bodies of Jo Ann Bain and 14-year-old Adrienne Bain were found last week behind the home where the Mayes family lived.
Twelve-year-old Alexandria Bain and eight-year-old Kyliyah Bain are still missing.
