GARRARD, COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – A man accused of burying the body of Savannah Spurlock will go before a grand jury next month.

Police accuse Sparks of putting her there.
The cause of Spurlock’s death has not been released.
Sparks’ case will be heard by the Garrard County grand jury on August 14. The grand jury will return indictments on August 16.
