NEWPORT (WATE) -  A fourth person has been arrested and indicted in the 2012 double murder of a young Cocke County couple.

Teresa Miller of Newport was taken into custody by Greene and Cocke County deputies Wednesday on first-degree murder charges.

The charges stem from the 2012 murder of Terrence Logan Stewart, 21, and Cortney Amber Thompson, 20.

The couple was found dead on March 11, 2012 under the river bridge on State Route 321 in Greene County.

Three people have already been arrested in the case - Tabitha Whitlock of Mosheim, James Black of White Pine and Christopher Jones of Newport.

The three were also indicted this week on the first-degree murder charges.

Miller's bond has been set at $500,000.
