A Sc lady was billed using the murder of her one-time boyfriend whose body was discovered inside a shallow grave several several weeks ago.

Jessica Marie Strachan, 28 — that has been under analysis for several weeks associated with her participation within the disappearance and dying of her ex-boyfriend Devantae Alzondrae Griffin — has now formally been billed together with his murder, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office announced on This summer 15.

Strachan, who’s presently in prison on obstruction charges associated with Griffin’s disappearance, was furthermore billed with having ammunition throughout the commission of the violent crime.

Griffin’s family reported him missing on March 30. He’d been last seen departing a house in Spartanburg with Strachan — that government bodies stated he had an “on-and-off” relationship — soon after night time.

Under questioning the very next day, Strachan “claimed no knowledge” of Griffin’s location and provided misleading information to detectives, officials stated. When investigators contacted Strachan for any second interview shortly after that, she’d already allegedly fled to Florida without notifying police force.

Government bodies then performed searching warrant at Strachan’s home, based on NBC affiliate WYFF, and allegedly found Griffin’s blood “throughout” residence, based on CBS affiliate WSPA.

She was arrested on April one in Miami and billed with obstruction of justice, based on an arrest warrant acquired by Archiweekend.com, for allegedly taking Griffin’s mobile phone together with her to Florida.

Strachan was extradited to Spartanburg, published bond and it was released from jail on April 15. She was re-arrested on April 25 for violating the circumstances of her home detention and it has continued to be in prison since.

On April 26, Griffin’s body was retrieved from the shallow grave inside a wooded area close to the Evan Acres neighborhood of Spartanburg. His dying was subsequently ruled a homicide.

Officials stated the situation is open and active. Another person of great interest continues to be named within the situation, but hasn’t been billed.

Griffin’s family attended Strachan’s bond hearing on Saturday.

“To realize that I’ll never see him again really hurts,” Griffin’s mother, Felicia Griffin, told WSPA-TV. “He didn’t should be tossed away like trash.”

Griffin’s family stated he’ll be appreciated like a “good person.”

“We’ve been praying with this moment for any couple of several weeks now,” Griffin’s aunt, Beverly Griffin, also told the opening. “We only need some closure by what became of him and why.”

It’s unclear if Strachan has retained an attorney. A circuit judge is anticipated to issue a choice on her behalf bond later on. If charged, Strachan faces existence imprisonment.
