NASHVILLE, Tenn.--The woman indicted for the murder of a Dickson County deputy has been transferred from the Dickson County Jail to a Tennessee Department of Corrections facility.

Lieutenant Amy Longtin with the Dickson County Jail says Erika Castro-Miles was moved today "due to the magnitude" of the case.

Castro-Miles faces the murder charge in connection to the shooting death of Sgt. Daniel Baker. According to investigators, Castro-Miles was present when Steven Wiggins killed Baker and then lit Baker's body and patrol vehicle on fire.

Castro-Miles was arrest soon after the shooting but Wiggins evaded police for three days before his capture.

The announcement was made hours after FOX 17 News confirmed Joseph Daniels, charged in a separate case with murder, was also moved to a state facility. Daniels is accused of killing his 5-year-old non-verbal, autistic son Joe Clyde in April.

The two cases have gripped the Dickson community, each taking place within months of each other. Both Daniels and Castro-Miles have entered pleas of 'not guilty.'
