JUNCTION CITY —Three suspects arrested last week in connection with the death of a Junction City woman are each confined on a $1 million bond.

Larry Anderson, 25, Manhattan; Drexel Woody, 23, Fort Riley; and Marryssa Middleton, 22, Colorado, are confined in the Geary County Jail.

The three were arrested after authorities discovered the body of a woman in rural southern Geary County on Wednesday night. They believe the body is that of a missing woman, Amanda Clemons, 24.

Middleton and Anderson are both charged with first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and conspiracy.

Woody is charged with aiding and abetting first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and conspiracy.

According to Junction City police, Clemons was last seen Monday being placed in a silver colored vehicle with four other people.

An autopsy was scheduled for Saturday.

Lt. Jeff Childs of the Junction City Police Department said the FBI helped with the case after the agency asked for its help.
