Two others have been charged in connection with a meth lab that exploded two weeks ago near the Edmonton city limits fatally injuring a Metcalfe County man.

Joey Furlong and Robin Grissom, both of Edmonton, were charged over the weekend with tampering with physical evidence, possession of a controlled substance, first-degree and possession of drug paraphernalia, first offense, officials with the Metcalfe County Sheriff’s Department said.

Furlong and Grissom were taken into custody and lodged in the Barren County Corrections Center.

The pair were charged in connection with an explosion that killed 39-year-old Doug Jessee, of 3113 Columbia Road, Edmonton.

Jessee died at University Hospital in Louisville the day of the blast.

His wife, Melissa Jessee, faces multiple charges stemming from her husband’s death, authorities said.

She was rearrested over the weekend and charged with tampering with physical evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia, first offense. Both charges were enhanced, according to investigators.

Jessee was released on a $75,000 cash bond, Metcalfe County Sheriff Deputy Kevin Thompson said.
