WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — As two suspects await their first court appearance in the murder of Terri Sullivan, court documents are revealing how she died.
The complaint filed in Washington County on Friday says the suspects caused Sullivan’s death by blunt force trauma during her abduction on January 20.
Sullivan’s husband Samuel and his ex-wife Jenny Sullivan are charged with capital murder and kidnapping. They were arrested at Samuel Sullivan’s home in Wilmer on Thursday.
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.
Samuel Sullivan and Jenny Sullivan are due in court Monday in Chatom for a bond hearing.
