On Monday, May 23, a grand jury indicted a Franklin man on one count of murder, stemming from the brutal death of a Cartoogechaye man last year.
Randall Boyd Fouts, 44, has been charged with the first-degree murder of Thomas Larry Ramsey. Fouts was arrested on Tuesday.
Ramsey, who was 61 at the time of his death, was found at his Johnson Road home in the Cartoogechaye community on the morning of Aug. 12. According to his autopsy report, Ramsey died from strangulation by asphyxiation and blunt force trauma to the head. The victim had also reportedly been bound by the hands and feet with electrical chord.
