Sheriff’s deputies in Hancock County, Mississippi plan to take the Jaren Lockhart case to the district attorney within the next week.

Lockhart’s dismembered body washed ashore in the Bay St. Louis area last June.

Deputies say they don’t have enough evidence at this time to bring homicide charges against a couple identified as suspects.

They say they could make a case for desecration of a body against Terry Speaks and Margaret Sanchez.

The sheriff’s office also says Lockhart’s body parts may have been thrown from the Bay St. Louis Bridge.
