MCEWEN, Tenn. (WKRN) – A McEwen man already jailed on drug charges has now been charged with murder following a drug-related investigation into the death of another man.
William Hunter is accused of killing 42-year-old John Monsue at a home on Trace Creek Road on March 8.
Hunter lives at the home and made the initial 911 call, saying he came home to find Monsue dead.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said their investigation found Hunter was responsible for Monsue’s shooting death.
While on the scene, agents also found an active meth lab inside the home. Hunter was charged in connection to the meth on March 10.
This Tuesday, a grand jury returned indictments charging him with first degree murder, multiple drug offenses, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm.
Hunter was served the indictments in the Humphreys County jail where he is currently being held from his earlier arrest.
His bond was set at $500,000.
