GREENEVILLE—Two men and a woman were indicted Monday by a Greene County grand jury on multiple counts of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting deaths of two former Newport residents whose bodies were found on a dirt road under the Nolichucky River bridge the morning of March 11, 2012.

Indicted were James Douglas Black, 50, of 1309 Main St., White Pine; Christopher Allen Jones, 31, of 649 7th St., Newport; and Tabitha N. Whitlock, 33, of 3426 Dulaney Road, Mosheim.

Courtney Amber Thompson, 20, and Terrence Logan Stewart, 21, died early March 11, 2012, in what prosecutors say was a premeditated robbery that turned violent.

The three defendants are each indicted on six counts each of first-degree murder, reflecting different theories of the crime to be presented by prosecutors.
