A suspect accused of murdering a Knox County woman in 2010 is now in custody.
William Lester is one of three suspects indicted last week on murder and robbery charges for the death of Katherine Mills.
Police say just days before Christmas in 2010, her body was found outside her home.
She died from a head injury.
Jonathan Taylor and Amanda Hoskins are also charged.
They were already in jail when the indictments came down.
Police say that Lester surrendered.
“We're not sure what led up to the events that caused the robbery and the murder, but we do have these three individuals charged and indicted,” Trooper Shane Jacobs said.
Taylor and Hoskins have already pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Lester will be arraigned on May 25th.
