Police: Four Charged In Man’s Murder in Albertville
ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Four people are facing capital murder charges for a man’s death last month in Albertville.
The victim, Willie Coleman, Jr. was from Tuskegee.
Coleman, 22, was killed January 9, 2014 at a home on Valley View Drive. Albertville Police say Coleman was staying there at the time.
Albertville Police Chief Doug Pollard said after hundreds of hours of investigation by multiple state, local and federal agencies, they’ve made four arrests in connection with the early January homicide. ”It’s hard enough doing these cases as it is, but without the assistance of all these agencies around us we wouldn’t have been able to do it,” Chief Pollard says.
Chief Pollard says investigators believe the murder stemmed from a robbery. He says the five did not know each other.
All four people charged are from Gadsden. ”We do know what brought them up here, but as I said, that’s part of the investigation we can’t release yet,” Chief Pollard says.
Even though there are arrests made officers say this case is still under investigation so they still can’t release the full details of the case.
