CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Three people have been arrested and charged with killing a 20-year-old man and burglarizing a home in Athens earlier this month.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said 48-year-old Thomas P. Odum, 42-year-old Martha A. Thompson and 34-year-old Amanda L. Britnell were arrested Thursday morning. They have been charged in the July 4th death of Michael W.T. Womack in Athens.

Investigators found Womack's body at the home of a friend. The home had also been burglarized.

All three were being held at the McMinn County Jail on Thursday. Jail records did not list an attorney for any of the three.
