A man was sentenced to life in prison without parole for murdering Tiffany Brown and Richard Russell, 86, and Gladis Russell, 85.
Samuel K. Littleton II, of western Ohio, pleaded guilty to three counts each of aggravated murder and gross abuse of a corpse in a deal with prosecutors to avoid the death penalty for the three February slayings.
Police say they may have found the body of one of the elderly couple that have been missing from Bellefontaine, Ohio on Monday.
Last week, Samuel Littleton, who was arrested for the murder of Tiffany Brown, who was found murdered in her mother’s basement, stated he “dumped” the bodies of Richard and Gladis Russell in Georgia.
Two men looking for metal in Chattanooga, Tenn came across the body of an elderly man in some brush off the roadway in the 3800 block of Lightfoot Mill Road, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
The medical examination of the body is continuing, but Bellefontaine police believe it is the body of Richard Russell, 84, who disappeared, along with his wife on February 16.
