HARKEYVILLE -- New details tonight in the death of an elderly Central Texas woman found buried in Leon County on Monday.
The victim was 86-year-old Bonnie Harkey and her stepson Bruce Harkey is now in jail charged with solicitation of capital murder.
He's believed to have created a plot that left his stepmother and her caretaker Karen Johnson dead.
Bonnie was found buried near Hilltop Lakes Monday night and autopsy results reveal she was alive but unconscious when she was buried.
Bonnie's grandson Carl Pressley and his common-law wife Lillian King are charged with the caretaker's murder.
Karen Johnson was found dead on Sunday by her 12-year-old son.
