According to the Billy Cook, an investigator with the Coffee County District Attorney’s office, Elliott and Gill had been staying in a room in the motel for a couple of month to a month and a half.

After extensive investigation by Cook and Tullahoma Police investigators, Wade was indicted by the April term of the Coffee County Grand Jury on charges of two counts of first degree felony murder, two counts of premeditated first degree murder and especially aggravated robbery. He was arrested on the charges May 11, 2012 after being named in sealed indictments. Tullahoma attorney Bobby Carter represents Wade.

More Than 1,000 Die On Tennessee Roadways

There was a somber milestone on Tennessee roads last week.
The overhead signs on the interstate totaling the number of lives in fatal crashes hit 1,000.
Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers said that exceeds the 937 people who died on Tennessee roads last year.
State troopers said that more than half of those deaths may have been prevented had the person been wearing a seatbelt.
With that in mind, the highway patrol said they will be focusing on enforcing that and two other big problems – speed and alcohol.
Troopers attribute warmer than normal temperatures in January, February and March as one of the reasons for the increase in fatal wrecks, because more people were driving and riding motorcycles.
