The mother and wife of the alleged killers of a Roadrunner employee earlier this week has been arrested by Johnson City Police and charged with several drug crimes.
Investigators allegedly discovered methamphetamine, other drugs, and drug paraphernalia on Monday while executing warrants related to the shooting of Tava Woodard at the home of Donna Sexton, 2231 Fairview Ave. Her husband, Mark Sexton Jr., and son, Mark Sexton III, have been charged with first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and other offenses in Woodard’s death. Woodard was found shot to death at a Roadrunner Market at 408 N. Broadway St.
During a search of the Sexton home Monday, officers reportedly found in Donna Sexton’s bedroom what were believed to be 16 clonazepam and a vial of white powder believed to be methamphetamine. They also found three glass pipes with residue, another container with a white crystalline substance, a pill bottle with a green leafy substance and two sets of scales.
Officers when they searched the Sexton vehicle found a small baggie with a white crystalline substance believed to be methamphetamine in what officers think was Sexton’s purse.
When they went to serve a warrant Thursday night on Sexton, officers found additional drugs in a pair of shorts Sexton was wearing.
Sexton was charged with two counts of simple possession/casual exchange, possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She has also been charged with simple possession of Schedule II and VI drugs and simple possession of methamphetamine.
She was scheduled to be arraigned in Washington County Sessions Court Friday.
