Bryson Bonds-Tennessee Bureau of Investigation

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--A second man has been indicted for the murder of a pregnant West Tennessee woman.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and multiple other agencies assisted in the investigation into 27-year-old Jessica Hunt's murder on June 15th in Henning, a town just northeast of Memphis.

Hunt was three months pregnant at the time of her death when police found her body along a road. Investigators have developed 33-year-old Bryson Bonds as a suspect in the case. On October 1, Bonds was indicted by a grand jury with premeditated first degree murder, felony murder, especially aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence, theft, abuse of a corpse, and other firearm charges.

Bonds is being held in the Lauderdale County Jail on $1 million bond. He joins Sequna Copeland, who was arrested last weekend in connection to the murder.
