Louisa woman indicted in the deaths of two men

LOUISA, VA (WWBT) - A Louisa county woman, already serving a short prison sentence, could now be sent away for the rest of her life after she was indicted for the murders of two men.

Nearly two dozen felony indictments were announced today against 61-year-old Ulisa Chavers. Prosecutors revealed today details about 22 felony indictments in both Louisa and Amelia counties against Chavers.

She's finishing off a five year prison sentence for a slew of convictions including dumping her ex-boyfriend's body in a well. Now, she's charged with his murder and the murder of her second husband.

It's a case that shocked even longtime members of law enforcement. Chavers pleaded guilty to dumping Reginal Bowles, her ex boyfriend, in a well in Louisa. She also admitted to burying her second husband Clent Chavers in their backyard in Amelia. 

Chavers has maintained all along the deaths were accidental. But authorities now say forensic evidence analyzed by the Smithsonian Institute points to murder, though they won't say how the men died.

Chavers is accused of killing the two men and collecting $131,000 in social security checks. Lt. Howard Porter with the Louisa Sheriff's Office served Chavers the Louisa indictments on Monday.

"She was fairly upset, specifically at me, during the interview cause I was the one who broke the news to her that she was indicted in Louisa County," said Lt. Porter.

Chavers was appointed an attorney who has not yet met with his client. Chavers will be arraigned on August 16 in Louisa County Circuit Court.
