    JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. — A southern Indiana deputy prosecutor who agreed to a reduced bond for a man who later was accused of killing his girlfriend and mutilating and eating parts of her body has resigned. Chief Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Mull told The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Kentucky, on Tuesday the unidentified deputy prosecutor resigned for unrelated reasons. Mull says 33-year-old Joseph Oberhansley of Jeffersonville should have still been in jail at the time he is accused of killing his 46-year-old girlfriend, Tammy Jo Blanton. Oberhansley was charged Monday with murder, abuse of a corpse and breaking and entering. He previously had been charged in two separate cases in Clark County. Mull said he had Oberhansley’s bond set at $25,000 cash only, but Oberhansley was released after posting a bond of about $500.
