WILLIAMSON COUNTY – A Williamson County woman accused of murdering 11-year-old Jade Beasley of Marion in December of last year is expected to make her final pre-trial appearance today.
Julia Bevely stabbed Jade several times at her home on Songbird Lane in Marion on Dec. 5. Bevely is charged with three counts of first-degree murder. A jury trial is set for April 18.
According to the Williamson County State’s Attorney’s office, Bevely made the initial 911 call from their home saying that she had left Jade home alone for a brief time and saw a man in dark colored clothing fleeing from the home when she arrived. The investigation into the murder proved the claim to be false.
