WARRICK CO., IN (WFIE) -

A fifth arrest has been made in connection to the death of Joseph Nelson in Warrick County.

The Warrick County Prosecutor says Kelli Wyrick has been arrested on charges of assisting a criminal and possession of methamphetamine. 

The body of the 35-year-old Nelson of Martinsville, Indiana, was found on a conveyor belt at Alcoa's power plant in Warrick County in February. Authorities say Nelson died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Wyrick is the fiancé of murder suspect, Mathew McCallister, the man court documents name as the shooter.

Along with McCallister, three others are already in jail. 30-year-old David Lackey Jr., 22-year-old Jade Stigall and 25-year-old Shawn Grigsby all face murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges in the Nelson's death.

Wyrick spoke exclusively to 14 News after McCallister's court appearance this week.
