Tennessee Paramedic Indicted in Shooting Death of Estranged Wife

CLINTON, Tenn. (AP) -- An Anderson County grand jury has indicted a paramedic accused of shooting and killing his estranged wife and another man.

Phillip Douglas Seals, 44, of Heiskell, was indicted on two counts of premeditated first-degree murder and two counts of felony murder in the deaths of Misty Seals and Mark Adam Newton on Feb. 24.

Officers found Misty Seals, 29, and Newton, 42, dead inside an apartment, each shot several times. Misty Seals had moved into the apartment only a month before.

Phillip Seals remained in the Anderson County Jail, and no bond has been set. His arraignment was set for April 22.

The counts of felony murder were included because authorities allege the shooting happened during a burglary. The indictments were handed down last week.

Seals worked as a paramedic for the Campbell and Anderson County ambulance services and as a flight paramedic in Kentucky.
