San Saba County Grand Jury indicts three for murder
Carl Wade Pressley
Lillian Annette King
SAN SABA COUNTY - A San Saba County Grand Jury has returned murder indictments against Carl Wade Pressley, Lillian Annette King and Bruce Wayne Harkey for the role they played in the death of Karen Johnson earlier this year. Johnson was the caretaker of 86-year-old Bonnie Harkey, who was found buried in Leon County shortly after Johnson was found dead.
Sheriff's Office investigators and the District Attorney appeared before the grand jury for over four hours before the indictments were issued.
Pressley and King were also indicted for Burglary of a Habitation to Commit a Felony.
Karen Johnson was found dead back in March in Harkey's home in the 3700 block of West Highway 190.
When authorities found Harkey dead in the home, Bonnie Harkey was discovered to be missing. She was later found buried in Leon County.
Sheriff Allen Brown said the San Saba Sheriff's Office had spent over 500 hours investigating the crime and that the investigation is still ongoing. Another part of the investigation still continues in Leon County with the Texas Rangers also involved.
Sheriff Brown indicated the investigation has been a team effort.
