DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A Georgia man who was being held in the Houston County Jail on stolen property charges now has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder four members of his family.
Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes said deputies launched an investigation after William Rudolph "Bo" Drake allegedly asked a fellow inmate at the Houston County Jail to murder his two sisters and two nephews. All four live in southwest Georgia.
Hughes said Drake provided the informant with details, including a floor plan of one family member's home. Hughes declined to discuss a motive or other details of the alleged plot.
Investigators with the Seminole County Sheriff's Office and Donalsonville Police Department in Georgia assisted in the investigation.
