CULLMAN – A Cullman County man has been indicted for the murder of his wife. Jason Dewayne Crawford, 38, of Cullman was indicted by a Cullman County grand jury, which convened last week, for the murder of his wife Tiffiney Joy Crawford. Tiffiney Crawford, 32 at the time of her death, was found dead at the couple's residence on May 3, 2017.

According to Cullman County District Attorney Wilson Blaylock, the grand jury believed there was enough evidence that Jason Crawford intentionally murdered his wife. "He was indicted for intentional murder," he said. Blaylock said the next step in the case will be an arraignment, which will be in late June.

Jason Crawford turned himself in to the Cullman County Detention Center on Monday. His bond was set at $100,000 property. He has since made bond and been released.

Tiffiney Crawford was the founder of the popular MHM Mothers Helping Mothers community on Facebook. Members of MHM this past Saturday dedicated a Buddy Bench in Tiffiney Crawford's memory at Sportsman Lake Park. Jason Crawford attended the event.

This is a developing story. The Tribune is awaiting court documents with further details on the indictment.
