Three people have been arrested in connection with the robbery and murder of a Lawrenceburg man earlier this year, according to a news release.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said it has arrested Paul McNeal, 47, Jimmy Dale Hogan, 53, and Charles Timothy Rowden, 50, in connection with the Jan. 21 death of Connis Ray Blake Jr. shortly after his body was found in the burned remains of his Ethridge Redhill Road home.

The Lawrence County Grand Jury returned indictments charging each with one count of first-degree premeditated murder, one count of felony murder, one count of aggravated arson, one count of especially aggravated robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.

All three men are being held on a $1.5 million bond.
