NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A 12-year-old murder of Centerville resident Jeffrey Ola has been solved by the Hickman County Sheriff's Office and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.  


The 35-year-old man was driving home from a Sonic drive-in on January 6th, 2001 when he was shot to death in his car after pulling into his driveway. His mother --who he was on the phone with at the time-- said she heard him say he had been shot and was dying. 


After receiving new information in May of this year, a joint investigation in four states led to the indictments of Ola's wife and stepson at the time. 


Lisa Ann Howalter, 53, and Scott Waddell, 32, were each indicted for first-degree murder charges. Waddell is already serving time in a Mississippi jail for another charge, but Lisa Showalter was arrested at the Nashville airport today and booked into Hickman County Jail.
