DeFuniak Springs Murder Suspect Indicted

A suspect in the murder of a Florida panhandle woman has been indicted by a Walton County grand jury.

Kirk Williams of DeFuniak Springs was arrested in October for the beating death of Susan Dykes.

The victim's body was found floating in Lake Cassidy. Investigators say she had been in the water two or three days.

Fingerprints were used to make a positive identification.

Then authorities searched the woman's mobile home just outside DeFuniak Springs.

Investigators say that's where evidence indicates the crime was committed.

Williams is still being held in the Walton County jail.

A trial date has not been announced.
