I've tried to organise the sequence of events and outline the 5 suspects in the death of this young man: James Junkins, 21, found in February 2005 in a ditch Southwest of Houston Texas. In June of 2005 Edward Bachelder, 22, a homeless man, went to police in Portland, Maine to turn himself in, and to say he had witnessed the killing of his travelling companion. That is when authorities in Maine, checked with authorities in Texas, and identified James Junkins and found out he was from Biddeford, Maine. In June 2005, Athena Grandy, 23, of Lakeland, Florida, was arrested and is held on a $500,000 bond. Her trial in the death of James Junkins is about to start on February 27, 2006. Edward Bachelder was charged with Capital Murder, and is awaiting trial. Sean Flanders, 22, of Lakeland, Florida is also charged. Both are being held on $1 Million Bond, in the Wharton County Jail. Tasha Kersey, 22, of Lakeland, Florida & David Anthony Theriot, 27, of Lexington, Kentucky Both have pleaded guilty to murder in December 2005, as a result of a plea bargain, both have been given a 40 year sentence. There was no comment regarding the two convicted people testifying at the upcoming trials.

The suspects are all from different places, and so is the victim. Also, what did they do to him to get a 40 yr sentence on a plea bargain?
