The son of a Tennessee judge is charged with attempted murder in connection to the shooting of a woman at a home outside Nashville last weekend – and is accused of stealing a Jeep belonging to her boyfriend, a state lawmaker’s nephew, who turned up shot dead elsewhere in the city.
Samuel Earl Rich, the 25-year-old son of Bedford County General Sessions Court Judge Charles L. Rich, is so far charged with attempted murder and theft after allegedly shooting Hannah Grace Perryman in the head inside a home located on Temple Ford Road in Shelbyville early Aug. 13.
His next court appearance is scheduled for Friday morning.
Meanwhile, Metro Nashville Police said Rich was being sought for questioning in connection to the murder of Warner, who was found shot dead hours earlier on the night of Aug. 12 near 35th Avenue North in Nashville. Warner is the nephew of Republican state Rep. Todd Warner.
Rich has not been formally charged with murder in connection to Warner’s death.
