According to our TV News Partner, WVLT Oak Ridge police have identified 52-year-old Sean Finnegan and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Rebecca Dishman as suspects in the death of 36 year-old Jennifer Paxton.
Police responded to a home on the 300 block of East Fairview Road last August for reports of a possible homicide. Investigators say Dishman and Finnegan reportedly lured Paxton into the home with the promise of giving her a place to stay. Once she entered the home, officials said she was held against her will, physically attacked with a baseball bat and tortured.
In addition to murder charges Dishman and Finnegan are both facing aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence charges.
