HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - A third suspect is facing charges in connection to the death of Gavin Hargrove after turning herself into Lawrence County deputies.

Hargrove was the son of former Lawrence County District 5 Commissioner Joey Hargrove who passed away in a motorcycle crash in March of 2021. Hargrove was murdered on Christmas Eve 2021.

According to the LCSO, Maranda Harville, 42 of Moulton, turned herself in Friday, March 4 on a warrant for first-degree hindering prosecution and abuse of a corpse. Harville was released from jail on a $30,000 bond. Deputies say the charges stem from Hargrove’s death investigation.

In late December, Timothy Dakota McCary was arrested and charged with capital murder in connection with the death of Hargrove. Lawrence County Sheriff Max Sanders confirms Harville is McCary’s mother.
