Indictments Reveal Shields was Fatally Shot

Young County Grand Jury indictments reveal more information about the murder of a 20-year-old Graham woman who was first reported missing in Dec. 2011.

The court documents state 22-year-old Lajuana Long and 24-year-old Jeremy Thornburg used a gun to fatally shoot Candice Shields.

They will each face trial for murder.

Shields was last seen at her grandparents' home on Dec. 10, 2011.

Officials say she was three-months pregnant then, and also had a one-and-a-half year-old child.

Shields' friends and family members say at the time of her death, Shields was pregnant by Thornburg.

They also say Long was also pregnant by Thornburg around the same time.

Authorities have not said if Shields' body or the gun has been found.

We have requested more information and the public arrest affidavits, but each agency we've contacted for them has referred us to the other agencies.
