Man charged with murder in Carter County bound over to grand jury
Chad Anthony Benfield, 44, was living in a house nearby with his then-fiance, Donna Gay, her two sons and daughter-in-law, when Mary Nolen, 89, was attacked in her Dan Bowers Road home in the early morning hours of July 14. She died July 26, and an autopsy report indicated her death was due to complications of blunt force trauma to the head and neck. Benfield was eventually charged with especially aggravated burglary and felony murder in Nolen’s death.
