BOLIVAR, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Teresa and Mary Mayes both accepted plea agreements Friday for the kidnapping of two little girls and the murder of their sister and mother.

Teresa's sister, Bobbi Booth, is shocked at the outcome of her sister's plea agreement, but is relieved it is over.

"I just want it over with," she said. "I know that sounds cold hearted but I just want closure for them, the whole deal."

Bobbi Booth's sister was married to Adam Mayes, who investigators say killed Jo Ann Bain and her 14-year-old daughter, Adrienne. The two youngest girls were then kidnapped.

After a manhunt, Adam was found in the woods by Mississippi wildlife resource officers. He took his own life and the girls were rescued.

Prosecutors say Mary Mayes knew about the kidnappings and that Teresa Mayes was around for both the murders and kidnappings.

"Let me make it clear, my sister needs to be punished for her participation," said Booth. "No matter what, there is no right answer in this situation."

District Attorney mike Dunavant said in court that as a result of the plea agreements, the two surviving Bain sisters will not have to testify in court.
