Arraignment for women indicted in West TN kidnapping

Posted: Updated:

BOLIVAR, Tenn. (AP) - The widow and mother of a Mississippi man accused of a Tennessee murder-kidnapping are scheduled to appear in court after they were indicted.

Teresa Mayes and her mother-in-law, Mary Frances Mayes, are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in district court in Bolivar. The indictments, which were handed down by a grand jury Monday, will be released to the public after the arraignment.

Teresa Mayes is the widow and Mary Mayes is the mother of Adam Mayes, who authorities said killed Jo Ann Bain and her 14-year-old daughter before kidnapping Bain's two other girls and taking them to Guntown, Miss., in late April.

An intense search for Adam Mayes in the north Mississippi woods ended May 10 when he fatally shot himself. The girls, ages 12 and 8, were rescued safely.
