Investigators say in the early morning of Halloween day, Brantley and Jones strangled and suffocated Crawford with a garbage bag before dumping her body into a trash bin and taking it to a Decatur park.

An intense search for Crawford lasted for days before police discovered her body after questioning Jones, who they say led them to the park.

According to detectives, Crawford's murder came just days after Brantley sexually assaulted her.

They each face six charges, with include two counts of felony murder, a single count of murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and concealing the death of another. Brantley faces an additional charge of aggravated sodomy for the sexual assault.
