Body Found In Texas; Couple Facing Murder Charges

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A couple charged with murder in the death and dismemberment of a Kinston woman will be held without bond.

Grant Hayes and Amanda Hayes were brought in separately for their hearing Tuesday in Wake County. In addition to ordering that they be held without bond, District Court Judge Jacqueline Brewer said the public defender's office would represent each of them unless they decided to hire private attorneys.

A probable cause hearing is scheduled Aug. 16 for each of them. The two are charged in the death of 27-year-old Laura Jean Ackerson, an ex-girlfriend of Grant Hayes and the mother of two of his children. The couple is accused of killing Ackerson on July 13 and taking her dismembered body to Texas.

Authorities there say the remains have been positively identified.
