Kethan Anderson, 38, and Anna Smith, 31, are now in custody and charged with the murder of the unidentified deceased individual discovered on November 28th.  Anderson was arrested this morning in Hereford, Texas, and Smith was arrested Friday night in Burleson, Texas.

The skeletal remains of the unidentified victim were found on November 28th in the backyard of an abandoned home in the area of 2100 20th Street. The Lubbock County Medical Examiner’s Office is still working to identify the victim believed to be a male.
