Two Indicted for Second-Degree Murder

A grand jury in Roane County indicted 21-year-old Casey Lee Ridenour and 33-year-old Samuel Lee Cook for second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse. The charges stem from an incident last December after the body of 37-year-old Aaron Reed Brown of the Daysville community was found in the Little Emory River. Authorities say the victim had a seat belt wrapped around his neck. Court documents indicate Ridenour and Cook placed Brown in the river in an attempt to dispose of his body and fled the scene.
