CABELL COUNTY, WV (WOWK) – A grand jury will hear the case against a man accused of allegedly murdering a missing woman and concealing her body in a wooded area in Kentucky.

The criminal complaint states that Brock Meade is accused of allegedly shooting Judd in the head, causing her death. Her body was then concealed in a wooded area of Carter County where her remains were found.

Meade was arrested on May 12 and charged with murder and felony concealment of a dead body. His brother was also initially charged with felony concealment of a dead body, but the charge was dropped on May 16.
