An Indiana woman has been arraigned on charges of felony murder in connection to a 2017 homicide in Decatur.

Nina Levenhagen, 27, was charged with felony murder Thursday for her alleged role in the November 2017 murder of 31-year-old Jessica True Wallace. She is the second person charged in the death of True Wallace.

In February, Levenhagen’s boyfriend, Glenn Russell Tett Jr., was charged with open murder and second-degree arson in connection to True Wallace’s death.

“The tips came in with (Levenhagen) about the same time it did with the other subject,” said Van Buren County Sheriff Dan Abbott. “The detectives from multiple agencies have been working on those tips and fortunately they were able to piece it together.”

True’s body was found the morning of Nov. 30 after a fire at a home on East St. Marys Street in Decatur.

Levenhagen is being held on a $5 million bond. Her next court date is scheduled for March 21.
