BROWNWOOD, Texas - A man suspected in the disappearance of a Brownwood woman has been indicted for her murder.
A Coleman County grand jury indicted Lanny Bush on a capital murder charge in the death of Michele Reiter.
Until now, Bush, who was also Reiter's ex-boyfriend, was only charged with online impersonation. According to court documents, Bush admitted to setting up a fake Facebook account to communicate with Reiter – with the intention to harm her.
Reiter disappeared nearly a year ago – in September – after she left to go on a dinner date. Her vehicle was found abandoned at a sports complex. Her body was found a couple of weeks later in a shallow grave in Coleman County.
Bush has not yet entered a plea for the murder charge. He has been in jail for nearly a year, with bond set at $275,000.
