Murfreesboro man charged with killing 86-year-old neighbor

Authorities have charged a Murfreesboro man with murdering his 86-year-old neighbor.
    
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a news release that 60-year-old William Russell Brace was arrested Sunday morning and charged with first-degree murder for the death of Lois Jean Espy, whose body was discovered last week on a local road in Bedford County.
    
During the course of the investigation, the TBI got information that led to Brace as the person responsible for Espy’s death in her Murfreesboro apartment, and the individual who moved her body.
    
Brace is being held without bond in the Rutherford County Jail. Records do not show if he has an attorney.
