The mother and wife of the suspect in the slaying and kidnapping case of Tennessee mother and daughters have been arrested for their involvement in the case.
The police have finally made some progress in the missing Tennessee mother and daughters case. The wife and mother of the suspect, Adam Mayes, have been arrested due to their involvement in the case. It was recently discovered that Adam Mayes killed the mother, Jo Ann Bain, and her eldest daughter, Adrienne Bain, and now it is being said that his wife and mother knew about his dangerous intentions all along and they did not inform the police about it.
Adam Mayes' wife, Teresa Mayes, is charged with four counts of aggravated kidnapping and his mother, Mary Francis Mayes, is charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated kidnapping. Both the wife and the mother were arraigned by the police on Tuesday morning.
Teresa Mayes admits in an affidavit that she was involved in the kidnapping, as she drove the Tennessee mother and daughters from Hardeman County to Union County, Miss. Adam Mayes' mother, Mary Francis Mayes' crime was that she knew about the crimes but did not inform anyone about them. The bail for Teresa Mayes is set at $500,000 while that of Mary Mayes is $300,000.
Even Teresa Mayes' sister, Bobbi Booth, said that she suspected that her sister knew something but was not telling, probably because she was too scared. Booth told the reporters that Adam Mayes and Teresa Mayes, who is now his ex-wife, used to live with his parents in Alpine, Miss.
Adam Mayes was Jo Ann's husband, Gary Bain's friend, and it is still not clear what could have led to the kidnapping and slaying of Jo Ann Bain and her daughters.
Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters - Adrienne, 14, Alexandria, 12 and Kyiliah, 8 - were kidnapped from their house on the 27th of April. Their father reported them missing on the same day he found his wife and daughters missing.
The bodies of Jo Ann Bain and Adrienne Bain were found behind a house in northern Mississippi, and at once they were taken for identification. The two youngest Bain sisters are still believed to be with Adam Mayes, but so far, there has been no clue where he is keeping them.
