Texas man charged in connection with body found in container
PARIS, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a Texas man has been arrested in connection with the discovery of the body of a woman in a plastic container floating in Kentucky Lake.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said agents believe 60-year-old Jeffery Rogers of Arlington, Texas, used a boat rented in Paris, Tennessee, to dispose of the body.
Kentucky State Police said earlier that the woman was identified as 41-year-old Traci L. Jones of Granbury, Texas.
Rogers was charged with abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. Police say he was arrested Tuesday in Fort Worth, Texas, with bond set at $1 million.
