Group Arrested During Death Investigation

More charges are filed in a death investigation that began as a missing person’s case in Etowah County. Christopher Cagle and Michael Townsel, Junior are now charged with murder. And Delia Downs is charged with kidnapping and hindering prosecution. All 3 are in the Marshall County Jail on one-million-dollars bond each. Gary Willis' body was found in a burned car in Geraldine in December. An autopsy showed he'd been shot several times. Investigators say the three suspects took Willis from a home in Marshall County, against his will, 4 days before his body was found. A grand jury could upgrade the charges to capital murder in the future.
