Newsbreak: Fiancé of Katelyn Markham, Who Went Missing 12 Years Ago, Indicted on Murder Charges in Her Death

John Carter, the fiancé of Katelyn Markham, an art student who went missing nearly 12 years ago, has been indicted on two counts of murder in her death. The charges stem from Markham’s August 2011 disappearance from her home in Fairfield, Ohio, a few weeks before she was due to complete her graphic arts degree at the Art Institute of Ohio. Carter was apprehended on Wednesday and is being held at the Butler County Prison. It is unclear whether he has hired an attorney.

Markham’s skeletal remains were discovered in a rural area in Cedar Grove, Indiana, some 20 miles west of her Fairfield home, in 2013. Authorities subsequently ruled her death a homicide. Carter and Markham were engaged at the time of her disappearance and had plans to move to Colorado later that year. The circumstances surrounding her death and the motive behind it are still unclear.

The investigation into Markham’s death led to the arrest of another man, Jonathan Palmerton, earlier this year. Palmerton was charged with felony perjury in connection to Markham’s death, and the case against him remains active. However, authorities have not disclosed any details about his alleged involvement in the case.

The arrest of John Carter comes after years of investigation into Markham’s disappearance and death. The case has received widespread attention, and the indictment of Carter has given hope to Markham’s loved ones that justice will be served.

Carter is currently being held in jail, and it is unclear when he will make his first court appearance. The investigation into Markham’s death is ongoing, and authorities have not ruled out the possibility of additional arrests in the case.
