Pearman was taken into custody in Manchester after fleeing Rutherford County in the female victims’ Jeep. Pearman was arrested at a gas station at Exit 111.
Jacob Pearman will also face charges that he assaulted the woman’s son.
Apparently the suspect called his parents and left what has been described as a troubling message. The family then called the police and authorities paid a visit to the home to do a welfare check. The victim was found deceased in her bed.
The female victim was allegedly bludgeoned to death. Police say Pearman has confessed to the murder of his wife.
