Potter's trial to be held in Washington County

Marvin Enoch “Buddy” Potter, along with Jamie Lynn Curd, were previously charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the death of both Billy Clay Payne, Jr. and Billie Jean Hayworth on January 31, 2012. Both Payne and Hayworth were found shot dead in their home. Their infant son was found unharmed in his mother’s arms. Both Potter and Curd were indicted by the Grand Jury on July 27, 2012. Potter appeared in Johnson County Court on August 1, 2013. Motions filed were denied. His trial is set for October 7, 2013. The venue for Potter’s trial has been changed and he will be tried in Washington County, Tennessee.
