(WARRICK CO.) - Authorities say 35-year-old Joseph Nelson of Martinsville was shot once in the head before his body was loaded into a coal car that went to the Alcoa Plant in Warrick County.

The Warrick County prosecutor has filed murder charges against 30-year-old David John Lackey, Jr. and 22-year-old Jade Nicole Stigall, both of Boonville and 25-year-old Shawn M. Grigsby of Evansville.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports that at the time of their arrest, Lackey and Stigall were out of jail on bond for drug-related charges and were wanted on new drug charges.

Nelson's body was found February 17th by workers in the coal-handling system of the power plant at Alcoa's Warrick Operations just east of Evansville.

Stigall told police she was at an Evansville motel when Nelson made her feel uncomfortable and she called the other men. Court documents say they all drove to a rural site in Warrick County where Nelson was shot.
