Burgin No Bond

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Jail records show no bond for a man accused of killing two brothers in a West Huntsville church in one year ago.

Louis Anthony Jackson and Terry Bradford Jackson were found dead at the West Huntsville United Methodist Church on 9th Avenue on May 21, 2013.

Police say they received new information earlier this year that led them to identify Richard Burgin, Jr. as a suspect. They said they found evidence that confirmed he is responsible for the crimes, and obtained a warrant charging Burgin with capital murder.

According to court records, Burgin pleaded guilty to robbery in Tuscaloosa in 1997. Huntsville Police also arrested him in 2013 for robbery, but the grand jury did not return an indictment in that case.

He was brought to the Huntsville-Madison County Metro Jail on Thursday, and will appear before a judge soon.

Burgin now faces a capital murder charge in Madison County.
