The case against a Murfreesboro man accused of killing his wife is moving forward.
Jacob Pearman is charged with first degree murder. Investigators say he killed his wife Carla last month inside their Murfreesboro home.
During a preliminary hearing, prosecutors played a videotaped interview with Pearman. During the interview, Pearman admits to choking his wife to death.
A judge has found probable cause to send this case to the grand jury.
Prosecutors have not determined if they will seek the death penalty in this case.
"Review the facts and I will sit down with Mr. (Paul) Newman, and also probably with the family of the young lady, and discuss that, and make a final determination of which way we'll proceed," says DA Bill Whitesell.
Pearman remains in the Rutherford County Jail, where he is being held without bond.
