TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (WHNT) – The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a man in connection with a Tullahoma nursing student’s murder.
Donnie Frank Jones is not charged in Megan Sharpton’s death. However, he is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. Deputies arrested him on Thursday.
Jones, 37, lives in Tullahoma. He is being held on $500,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court October 1.
