Glenn Jackson Indicted on Charges of Murder, Abuse of Wife’s Corpse


Almost three months after his initial arrest, Glenn Jackson was indicted by a Madison County jury for the murder of his wife, Ella Jackson.

Ella Jackson went missing in October of 2019, and Glenn Jackson was arrested in late April shortly before Ella’s skeletal remains were found in a remote part of Pulaski County. The indictment states that Glenn Jackson is facing charges of murder, abuse of a corpse, and three counts of tampering with physical evidence.

According to court documents, Glenn placed her body in a car to take to rural Pulaski County, where he then hid her body and attempted to rid the vehicle of blood evidence. However, police were still able to locate what they determined to be a significant amount of Ella’s blood in the trunk of the car.

Citations detail recordings that Ella had made of her and her husband’s arguments, and told multiple people including a domestic violence counselor that she was afraid of Glenn, just shortly before she went missing.

Glenn Jackson has pleaded not guilty to the charges of murder, abuse of a corpse, and tampering with physical evidence through video and is currently lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
