Murderous Trouble in Coffee County

  Email   Print

A Winchester man is being held in the Coffee County Jail under a $1 million bond. Marcus Wade was transferred from federal custody to the county lock up Friday morning to face charges in connection with the October 2011 double murder at a Tullahoma motel of two Franklin County men. Wade is accused of killing Richard Wayne Elliott and Timothy Gill. He was released from federal custody after charges were dismissed last week. Sheriff Steve Graves stated Friday that Wade’s return to Coffee County is causing serious problems in the already overcrowded jail. The sheriff noted that due to Wade being a high risk prisoner, one cell block has been cleared out and he is being held in the cell. Wade has been linked to several murders in Franklin County, another one in Coffee County and possibly Bedford County. He has allegedly been a part of a major crack cocaine drug trafficking organization in the past. He is scheduled to appear in Coffee County Circuit Court May 30.
