(SULLIVAN CO.) – More information was released in the murder of 61-year-old Patricia Dorsett.
Last week, police arrested 40-year-old Danny Wilson, Jr. and 40-year-old Renee Huffines, both from the Indianapolis area, in connection with Dorsett’s death.
Wilson was charged with murder and Huffines was charged with conspiracy to commit murder, and aiding, inducing, or causing an offense of murder.
According to court records, Wilson and Huffines were both staying at Dorsett’s home in Cass located northwest of Dugger in eastern Sullivan County. The couple moved in after Dorsett’s brother passed away.
Dorsett was reported missing by friends after being seen on May 22.
Police executed a search warrant at her home on Tuesday, May 28, where police located her decomposing body in the back of a camper trailer.
Police say Wilson committed the murder while Huffines stood back and let it happen, never reporting it to police.
According to an autopsy report, Dorsett had been shot. The murder took place in Dorsett’s home. Huffines then helped Wilson dispose of the body by placing it in the camper.
The pair reportedly continued to live in Dorsett’s home after she was murdered.
Both remain in the Sullivan County Jail with no bond allowed.
A trial date of Oct. 29 has been set for Danny A. Wilson Jr., with a pretrial hearing set for Aug. 27.
