Phillip Schindler charged with heroin trafficking

Amarillo, TX - One of two men indicted for tampering with evidence in connection with an Amarillo murder has now been charged with heroin trafficking.

The Amarillo Globe News is reporting Phillip Schindler and two other men have been charged by federal authorities.

Schindler is also accused of moving the body of Clay Petersen. Peterson was found dead in a north Amarillo ditch nearly three months ago, but investigators say that's not where he died.

The Randall County District Attorneys office says they believe Schindler and William Doan moved Petersen's body from a home on Princeton street to the ditch on Smelter road.
