GREENEVILLE—Jeffery Lee Stock, 44, of Newport, Tenn., was sentenced on February 27, 2013, to serve 46 months in prison by the Honorable J. Ronnie Greer, U.S. District Judge.  Stock previously pleaded guilty to a federal grand jury indictment charging him with interstate travel and failure to register as a convicted sex offender.

In January 2013, Stock pleaded guilty in state court in Cocke County, Tenn., to second-degree murder, arson, and theft relating to the disappearance of Megan Maxwell.  Under the terms of the plea agreement Stock negotiated with the district attorney general, to serve a term of 18 years in state prison at 100%, with credit for time served since he was arrested on the federal sex offender registration charge and credit for any time he will serve on the federal violation.
