CULLMAN – New details emerged Tuesday in the case of a Cullman County man who was indicted last week for the murder of his wife. Jason Dewayne Crawford, 38, of Cullman was indicted by a Cullman County grand jury on May 17, 2018 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.

A copy of the indictment was made available Tuesday. It reads: "Jason Dewayne Crawford, whose name is otherwise unknown to the Grand Jury, did on or about May 2, 2017, intentionally cause the death of another person, to-wit: Tiffiney Joy Crawford, by shooting Tiffiney Joy Crawford twice with a hand gun…."

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.
