CHATOM, Ala. (WKRG) — The two suspects accused of kidnapping and killing Terri Sullivan will have their initial court appearance on Monday morning. A judge is expected to set bond in the case.
Terri’s husband Samuel Sullivan and his ex-wife Jenny Sullivan are charged with kidnapping and capital murder. They were arrested at Samuel Sullivan’s home in Wilmer on Thursday.
The criminal complaint filed in Washington County on Friday says the suspects caused Sullivan’s death by blunt force trauma during her abduction on January 20.
Terri Sullivan’s remains along with her burned rental car were discovered in March in Grand Bay. She worked as a nurse at Springhill Medical Center in Mobile.
According to court documents, the two suspects purchased prepaid cellphones which were activated on the morning of the murder. Investigators traced those phones to the location where the abduction took place, as well as to the site where the burned car was discovered.
