Jury indicts Mabry on murder charge

A Dublin man was indicted Monday in the death of a 42-year-old woman found dead beside a county road in January.
Richard F. Mabry was indicated on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Dawn Lee Meredith Wright.
Wright was found dead in a ravine in what is commonly referred to as Alum Spring Mountain Road Jan. 24. Mabry, 40, was arrested less than 24 hours later.
According to the medical examiner who performed the autopsy on Wright’s body, Wright died from five stab wounds — two to the front chest that perforated the lungs, two to the back, and one to her thigh.
Wright and Mabry were acquaintances, police said.
According to testimony in an earlier preliminary hearing, Mabry finally admitted killing Wright as an initiation into the Pagan’s Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.
He told police a member of the gang threatened to kill him if he did not take part in the initiation.
Wright’s body was found by passengers in a pick-up truck heading down the mountain toward Alum Spring Road, according to Pulaski County Sheriff Jim Davis.
One passenger noticed something suspicious over in a ravine that caught his eye.
The vehicle stopped, and when the passengers got out, they quickly realized that it was a body and contacted the sheriff’s office.
The initial investigation indicated foul play.
After the body was identified, friends, acquaintances and family members of the victim were interviewed, tracing the last 24 hours of the victim’s life, Davis said.
The investigation led authorities to name Mabry as the suspect, and he was charged with murder Jan. 25.
