At a Tuesday hearing held to determine whether accused killer James Morris “Jim” Lynn confessed to police two days after Tonya Faye Lynn was reported missing in late July of 2011, a Barrow County judge decided to allow the recorded confession to be admitted. Lynn’s trial in the murder is slated to begin July 11. Lynn was arrested on an obstruction charge relating to his wife's disappearance and was formerly indicted by a grand jury on murder and aggravated assault charges in October 2011. Prosecutors believe Lynn bludgeoned his wife with a baseball bat and then dumped her body in a well.
