An investigation by Tennessee Bureau of Investigation special agents, along with Gibson County sheriff’s investigators, resulted in the arrest of two suspects for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and solicitation of first-degree murder.

On May 17, TBI agents began an investigation into a potential murder-for-hire plot. The investigation revealed Kenneth Cook, 25, and Monique Lenon, 36, both of Gibson County, conspired in the murder for hire.

A Gibson County grand jury returned an indictment against both suspects Nov. 6 for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and solicitation of first-degree murder.

Cook remained in the Gibson County jail awaiting trial for a separate offense and was held on the additional charges without bond. Lenon was arrested without incident and booked in at the Gibson County Jail on $250,000 bond.
