Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, working alongside investigators from the Savannah Police Department and the Hardin County Sheriff's Office, have arrested a third person in connection to a 2010 homicide.

At the request of former 24th District Attorney General Hansel McAdams, TBI Special Agents joined the homicide investigation into the death of Otylier Callens on September 8, 2010, the same day officers from the Savannah Police Department found the body of the 80-year-old in her Ryan Street home. During the course of the investigation, authorities developed information leading to John Howard Provence (DOB 2/14/50) as one of the individuals responsible for the murder.

Tuesday evening, authorities arrested Provence, of Savannah, and charged him with one count of First Degree Murder, one count of Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder, and one count of Especially Aggravated Robbery. He was booked into the Hardin County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.

Two other individuals, Michael Scott Mowdy (DOB 3-24-83) and Patsy Lynn Shelby (DOB 6/4/50), the victim's daughter, were previously arrested as part of this ongoing investigation. Details on those arrests can be found on the TBI Newsroom blog: http://www.TBINewsroom.com.
