Johnson County murder

MOUNTAIN CITY, Tenn. -

Two Johnson County men have been indicted on first degree murder and felony murder charges by a Mountain City grand jury.

Jamie Curd and Marvin Potter were indicted Tuesday. They're accused of killing Billy Payne, Jr. and Billie Jean Hayworth back in January 2012 at a home in the Doe Valley community.

Johnson County authorities say a controversy between the couple and Potters' daughter began when they de-friended her from the website Facebook.
