Sullivan Inmate Charged with a 1989 Double Murder


We just got word that a Sullivan County inmate is now facing two counts of first degree murder.

According to Sheriff Clark Cottom, 42 year old Eric Robert Begley of Shelburn, IN, is currently in the Sullivan county jail on unrelated charges.

Cottom says following a month long investigation, Begley was charged with the death of 79 year old Cleve McMahan and his 75 year old wife, Allene.

The couple were found dead in their Ashville, North Carolina home on December 11, 1989.

Officials say the case was reopened after Begley gave a voluntary statement regarding the murders.
