New charges filed in case linked to NH couple’s deaths


KINGSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A prosecutor says new charges have been filed against a Utah couple arrested last year in connection with the deaths of a New Hampshire couple found buried at a South Texas beach.

Kleburg County District Attorney John Hubert says 33-year-old Amanda Noverr and 33-year-old Adam Curtis Williams now face charges of tampering with evidence, felony theft, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Both were arrested in Mexico last year in connection with the deaths of James and Michelle Butler, but they have not been charged with murder.

A gag order prevents attorneys including defense lawyers from commenting on the case.
