A Thayer man who is among those charged in a brutal Texas County murder waived arraignment Tuesday in Texas County Associate Circuit Court.  

James T. Grigsby, 25, is charged with abandonment of a corpse north of Cabool and tampering with physical evidence in a felony prosecution. He was earlier indicted by a Texas County grand jury, and his case was transferred to Texas County Circuit Court. He is held without bond and entered a not guilty plea. He is to appear Nov. 7 for a trial setting.

Grigsby is among four persons charged in the death of Joseph M. Steinfeld, 17, who went by “Ally” and planned to transition to a female, according to family members. The case has drawn national attention.
