From The Commercial Appeal:

(Firefighter/paramedic) Avis Langford-Brannon, (Battalion Chief) Beverly Prye and (Battalion Chief) Sandra Richards have been indicted on charges of forgery, tampering with evidence and aggravated perjury.

All three — employees of the Memphis Fire Department — have surrendered to authorities. All three were jailed on bond of $20,000 each; Richards remained in jail Sunday.

From WMC-TV:

Forgery charges have been filed relating to the will of the late state representative Ulysses Jones, Jr.

In May, the fight over Jones' will ended with a Probate Court judge ruling that the signature on the document was not Jones' and therefore not valid.

The fake will had left the bulk of the estate to a woman he lived with for the past 18 years.

From an article by Bonny Kinney WREG:

According to the document, Jones left his estate, worth about $100,000, to his longtime girlfriend, Sandra Richards.  Jones and Richards had both worked as Battalion Chiefs within the fire department.

Jones' adult children later took legal action saying that the will was a phony.  A judge agreed earlier this year.
