Level Plains man indicted in mother’s murder, dismemberment


OZARK, Ala. (WDHN) — A Level Plains man was indicted in his mother’s death and dismemberment last Tuesday.

Days after mother’s day, Geneva County law enforcement found a burned-out car with dismembered remains near Highway 167 at the Choctawhatchee River.

Investigators found that the victim was Penny Newton and that her son Chad Brogdon, 36, was responsible.

It is believed that Brogdon killed his mother at his home, later disposing of the body by using an accelerant. The indictment says they still do not know how she died, however.

He faces charges for murder and corpse abuse.
