Another suspect in the disappearance and death of Carl Anderson of Highlandville pleads guilty and awaits sentencing.
Forty-five-year-old Teri Dean-Morrison entered Alford pleas to charges of second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence. She was found guilty by the court and will be sentenced in August after an assessment report is returned to Jasper County, where her case was moved on a change of venue.
A dispute over drugs reportedly led to an altercation that claimed Carl Anderson’s life two years ago. His body was moved from Dean-Morrison’s home and later recovered on private property near Kimberling City.
Forty-five-year-old Eugene Crider is serving 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to identical charges. Forty-four-year-old Cheryl Crawford is serving an 8-year sentence for tampering with physical evidence.
