The Anderson county sheriffs office has arrested 29 year old Matthew Fulbright of Belton in connection with the beating deaths of 72-year-old Homer and 68-year-old JoAnn Staton of Taylors. The body of JoAnn Staton was found Wednesday night near Iva. Officials say that Fullbright had a meeting with the couple Friday night in Anderson county.
Sheriff John Skipper says investigators know that the couple dealt in jewelry, and that they planned to meet with someone. Skipper says Fulbright got the couple in an isolated area.
