A Shelby County Grand Jury indicted Randall Freeman, 32, on second-degree murder charges in the death of 29-year-old Keila Ashford Freeman who had been missing for more than a year. She disappeared Sept. 6, 2016, from their home in the 4200 block of Meadow Ridge Trail.
Freeman has been in jail since then on a related arson charge.
On Dec. 19, 2017, authorities found his wife’s remains in a wooded area off of Barnstable Road near South Germantown Road in southeast Memphis.
The case is being handled by Chief Prosecutor Paul Hagerman and Asst. Dist. Atty. Austin Scofield of the DA’s Multi-Agency Gang Prosecution Unit which handles homicide cases and other violent crimes associated with gang activity, specific targeted gang members and special cases assigned by the District Attorney General.
The prosecution team works daily with the MGU Operations team, using local ordinances and state and federal laws to hold offenders accountable.
