A 53-year-old woman arrested in Sallisaw on Monday was charged with being an accessory to a nearly 20-year-old murder.
Tabatha Carter told investigators she was a willing participant in the July 2001 shooting of Jerry Jeffries outside a Missouri bar. In a probable cause statement, Carter said she saw another man shoot Jeffries in the head as he begged for his life.
Carter was arrested without incident Monday and was transferred to the custody of Miller County (Missouri), where she has been jailed without bond, according to the sheriff’s office there.
She was also charged as an accessory to armed criminal action.
