A second person has been arrested in the death of 39-year-old Jo Lee Richards, Jr. Detectives with Benton PD arrested Myra Terry, 53, on Friday – just a day after Marissa Wright was charged with Capital Murder in the case.

Terry is being charged with Hindering Apprehension during the investigation of a missing person and homicide of Jo Lee Richardson, Jr. from Oct. 8, 2010 to Oct 7, 2011. Terry is also being charged with Abuse of a Corpse and Tampering with Evidence.
