The man accused of murdering his wife Carla Pearman on Valentine’s Day in 2013 in the Blackman Community will soon appear before Judge David Bragg.
Jacob Pearman, 30, was previously scheduled to appear in court in March, but the date was changed. Rutherford County Deputy Circuit Court Clerk Robin Gentry said Pearman will face charges for the murder of his wife on June 16th.
On the day of the murder, Pearman was due in court to face child abuse related charges for the alleged aggravated assault on Carla’s son. Pearman will face both the murder charge and the aggravated assault accusation at the same time, according to Assistant District Attorney J. Paul Newman.
Pearman allegedly killed his wife and later turned himself in after a phone call with Murfreesboro detectives. Pearman was arrested outside of a gas station in Manchester several hours after the murder by a Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper.
