Alexander Charged In Murder

The Washington County grand jury has indicted 42-year-old Karlene Ann Alexander of Chipley on a charge of murder in the first degree.

Alexander was charged with the July 24th axe murder of William Eugene Roberts at the couple’s home.

Alexander remains in custody and held without bond in the Washington County Jail in Chipley.

She apparently fled the area after the slaying and then surrendered in St. Petersburg several days later.

State attorney Steve Meadows say his committee will meet in the near future to consider whether to seek the death penalty.
