Pair charged in homicide in 2009 Monroe County case

The one-time victim in a 2009 Monroe County, Tenn., campground shooting is now facing charges in the same incident, according to an Monroe County indictment issued by the Grand Jury last week.

Joshua Anderson, 31, of Madisonville, is held on $50,000 bond in connection with his arrest on a Criminal Court indictment charging him with second degree murder and possession of a weapon while under the influence.

His wife at the time, Jamie, has been charged with facilitation to commit second degree murder, according to court documents. She is being held on a $25,000 bond.

The pair will appear before Criminal Court Judge Amy Reedy July 15 for an arraignment in Monroe County Criminal Court.

Anderson was identified as a victim in a July 2009 incident for which investigators charged Danny Adams, according to newspaper archives. Adam's friend and another victim in the incident, Vince Cole, bled to death on a gravel parking lot at Monroe County's Hidden Lake Campground.

A jury last September decided it was not Adams' fault that Anderson took a gun that was reportedly handed to him by his Anderson's wife and fatally shot Cole.

Josh Anderson previously testified that the shooting was self defense. However, other witnesses told authorities that Jamie Anderson went to the couple's vehicle to get the gun. Josh Anderson then reportedly followed Adams and Cole around the building and then drew on them.
