The Danville man accused of fatally shooting three people, including his wife, in May 2020 has been indicted on three counts of capital murder by a Morgan County grand jury, and two other men were indicted in other slaying cases.

The grand jury convened in August, and the indictments were released Wednesday.

Hamblen was charged with fatally shooting his roommate, David James McCluskey, 54, at his home and dumping the body in the Tennessee River July 20, 2020. The body was discovered near the River City boat landing, according to sheriff’s records.

In addition to the capital murder charges, Peters was also indicted on a first-degree assault charge in the shooting and wounding of Mary Louise Kenney, the mother of Teresa Peters and Tammy Smith. Court records show Kenney was shot in the arm and spent several days in the hospital.

An arraignment for Carson Peters is set for Nov. 15.

Peters remains in Morgan County Jail with no bail set.
