Now that the man charged in the death of Vince Cole has been set free by a jury, the slain man's family is determined that the true killer be brought to justice.

On Aug. 31, a Monroe County, Tenn., jury found Danny Adams, of Clinton, Tenn., not guilty of criminally negligent homicide in Cole's death. On Wednesday, Cole's sister-in-law, Patricia Williams, asked Monroe County grand jurors to indict Joshua Anderson, of Madisonville, Tenn., and charge him with shooting Cole to death and wounding Adams at a Tellico Plains, Tenn., campground in July 2009.

"We were led to believe for three years that Danny [Adams] instigated it, to the point that, if he had not done that, the shooting would not have happened," Williams said in a telephone interview.
