19 after police were called to conduct a welfare check, Indiana State Police said. Preliminary autopsies conclude that both were stabbed and Bryant also had blunt force trauma to the head.
“Cody basically told the detective on Jan. 17 they woke up ‘dope sick.’ They were thinking of a way to get some drugs,” said Dearborn County Prosecutor Lynn Deddens.
Booth told investigators he sat down beside his mother and told her he loved her, then she seemed to know something was going to happen.
“She said, ‘You’re getting ready to do something you don’t want to do,’ and then Cody said ‘Yeah,'” Deddens said.
Booth told investigators he put his mother in a headlock and she bit him as he covered her mouth. Booth told detectives that’s when Thompson came with a knife and stabbed his mother multiple times.
Prosecutors said that Booth and Thompson then took the rings off Craig’s fingers and pawned them to buy drugs, then returned to the home for Bryant’s war medals and heirlooms.
Booth and Thompson are charged with two counts of murder, two counts of robbery and four counts of conspiracy.
Booth and Thompson were found in a car belonging to Bryant the day after police discovered the slain man and woman, police said. Booth was arrested on an outstanding warrant and Thompson was questioned and released.
“I love her. I always will,” said Thompson’s mother, Diane Land, who showed up for her daughter’s arraignment. “I’m sorry for everything that’s happened and my heart does go out to the victims’ family.”
