MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

More charges have been filed against three people arrested in connection with a Boaz man's murder.

Christopher Todd Cagle and Michael Stanley Townsel Jr. have been charged with murder and second-degree kidnapping. Delia May Downs is charged with second-degree kidnapping and hindering prosecution.

Marshall County Sheriff Scott Walls said Thursday that the new charges were filed after meeting with District Attorney Steve Marshall. He said investigators continue to work the investigation and that a grand jury could consider upgrading the charges to capital murder in future proceedings.

The body of Gary Lee Willis was found in the remains of a burned car on County Road 135 in December. An autopsy revealed Willis' body had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

All three remain in the Marshall County Jail on $1 million bond each.
