PASCAGOULA, MS (WLBT) - Two people connected to the fatal shooting of a Florida Panhandle couple are indicted here in Mississippi.

Hugh and Pamela Wiggins were indicted on charges of accessory after the fact.

According to the state attorney's office, they tried to discard guns used in the attack that killed Byrd and Melanie Billings in July 2009.

Pamela Wiggins is already jailed in Florida on a charge related to the murders.

Hugh Wiggins turned himself in to authorities in Pascagoula. The Billings were a prominent couple known for adopting children with disabilities.

Authorities believe the motive for the deadly home invasion was robbery.
