Today the Madison County Grand Jury indicted Charles Pittman, 22, for first‐degree murder and tampering with evidence in connection with the February death of his fiancée, Olivia Greenlee, according to the Jackson Police Department.
Pittman and Greenlee were both students at Union.
Pittman, who continues to be held at the Madison County Jail without bond, is scheduled to be arraigned at 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 10, in Madison County Circuit Court, Division I.
Jackson police were called to the parking lot of Luther Hall, an auxiliary part of Union’s campus around 8 a.m. Feb. 12 after Greenlee, 21, was found dead inside her Toyota Corolla.
Police investigators and an assistant county medical examiner found a gun inside the car, and the cause of death was determined to be a single gunshot wound.
Police investigators developed Greenlee’s fiancé, Pittman, as a person of interest. The investigation determined that Pittman shot Greenlee as she sat inside her car at Luther Hall and then staged the crime scene to give the appearance that Greenlee had committed suicide.
On Feb. 14, Pittman was arrested in Jackson and charged with Greenlee’s murder. His preliminary hearing was held July 10, sending the case to the grand jury.
