Woman May Now Face Charges In Johnson County Double Murder

Police say a woman who originally signed a plea agreement and thought she couldn't be charged after helping investigators find two bodies in Johnson County may have actually known a lot more than anyone thought.

Larry and Sandy Blanton went missing last year, but with the help of their son's girlfriend, Amanda Fannin, police found their bodies in February on the Blantons' own property.

According to paperwork obtained by LEX 18, investigators were under the impression that Fannin had no involvement in the murder, and that they thought she just found out about it after the fact. But, according to investigators, four people came forward telling the Sheriff's Office that Fannin told them, not only was she present during the murder of at least Sandra Blanton, but they say she also helped dispose of the bodies and clean up the murder scene.

Paperwork has officially been filed to revoke her plea. She's currently in the Pike County jail on unrelated charges.

Meanwhile, the Blantons' son, Willie, was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of Murder and Tampering with Evidence in their deaths.
