DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Bond has been denied for Diana Marie Malphus Jacobs, charged with concealing a dead body. The Judge cited a significant risk of intimidating witnesses.
The judge also says Jacobs has a criminal history, all minor offenses.
Defense Attorney Jill Starling says says that Jacobs is a nurse at The Rosewood Manor assisted living facility.
A body was found buried behind an assisted living center in Nicholls, and Jacobs was taken into custody.
Sheriff Doyle Wooten says his investigators got a tip, went to Rosewood Manor to question the woman Friday afternoon, and she admitted there was a body buried in a shed. GBI crime scene experts spent hours excavating the body.
Investigators must wait for an autopsy, but they think the body is that of a man who was a resident at Rosewood Manor. They're not sure the circumstances of his death or who may have been involved in burying him.
