A Bedford County Grand Jury also indicted Rich in the attempted murder of Hannah Perryman.

Rich is accused of shooting Perryman in the head and taking Warner's, who was her boyfriend, jeep in August.

Warner was found dead later that month in Nashville by Metro water crews.

Detectives believed at the time Warner was driven to the area of 35th Avenue N where he was shot and left in the street.

Rich was added to the TBI Most Wanted List and surrendered to authorities two days later.
