WEAKLEY COUNTY — A preliminary hearing originally scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 22, for two murder defendants in Weakley County General Sessions Court is rescheduled for Tuesday, December 20.
Tiffany Grogan, age 28, who was residing in the Dresden area at the time of the murder, and Julien De Mone Hardin, age 36, from Mobile, Alabama, were each charged with first degree murder and especially aggravated robbery in connection with the July 10th shooting death and robbery of 49-year old Terry Beard of Milan.
The murder and robbery charges allege that the two defendants were responsible for shooting Beard and leaving him to die on the side of a rural road near McKenzie in Weakley County. The cause of death was reported to have been the result of a gunshot wound.
Hardin was reportedly responsible for firing the fatal shot from a handgun that was stated to have been brought to the scene by Grogan. The two fled the scene following the shooting and Beard was found deceased lying partially in the road at the intersection of Bell Store and Patterson Roads. Grogan was arrested by the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department the following day and Hardin was charged a couple of days later when he was located in Weakley County.
Hardin is being held in the Weakley County Detention Center in lieu of bond pending the preliminary hearing. Grogan was originally free on a bond of $250,000 set by the Weakley County General Sessions Court pending the preliminary hearing on the murder and robber charge. She likewise had charges pending in Henry County for which she made bond following the posting of bond in Weakley County. However, the Times has learned that Grogan’s bond has been subsequently revoked in Henry County and she is currently incarcerated in the Henry County Detention Center.
The preliminary hearing is 10 a.m. on December 20 at the Weakley County Detention Center courtroom.
