Two Williamsburg residents were arrested and charged with murder on Sunday after police found them with a woman’s body in Whitley County on Sunday.

Police found Michelle E. Marlow, 36, deceased in a residence on Old Mud Creek Road after receiving a call about a female lying on the roadway. When police arrived at the scene, they did not find anyone lying on the road, but they did find evidence suggesting an assault had taken place.

The evidence led police to a nearby residence where they discovered Marlow’s body.

Williamsburg residents Chris J. Lowe, 38, and Lori C. Mattie, 37, were also inside the residence and were arrested. Lowe has been charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence, and Mattie has been charged with murder.

Marlow’s body will be taken to Frankfort on Tuesday for an autopsy to determine cause and time of death.
