ALLEN JUNCTION - Authorities have made a third arrest in the murder investigation of a Wyoming County man found shot to death in 2011.

Linda Combs, of Allen Junction, faces one count of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, according to Trooper Reed of the State Police Hinton detachment.

Authorities believe she had prior knowledge of the murder of 55-year-old James "Bo" Butler, whose body was found in April 2011.

Comb's ex-husband, Oscar Ross Combs Sr., and their biological son, Oscar Ross Combs Jr., were arrested earlier this month and each face a first-degree murder charge. The pair is accused of shooting Butler with a .22 caliber gun, dismembering his body and then dumping it off Crumpler Road in Herndon, according to state police. 

Linda Combs remains in Southern Regional Jail on $20,000 bond. The Mullens Police Department also assisted in her Wednesday arrest.
