3 charged in will signature case, forgery alleged

Posted: Updated:

ALTAMONT, Tenn. (AP) - A Grundy County grand jury has charged three people who TBI investigators say were involved in the forgery of a signature to a will. One of them is a former county mayoral candidate.

The indictment charges 47-year-old James E. Campbell II of Tracy City and two others in the forgery of his father's signature. The others are 34-year-old Labreeska Meeks of Gruetli-Laager and 46-year-old Kelly Foutch of Monteagle.

Chattanooga Times Free Press reported that in 2010, Foutch ran for mayor.

Charges of criminal conspiracy to commit theft were returned Monday against all three suspects and Campbell is additionally charged with forgery.

Deputies arrested Foutch on Tuesday, additionally citing him with resisting arrest.

The TBI said the "significant other" of the late James Campbell Sr. contested the will.
