It’s been nearly one year to the day since a burglary of a Wally World convenience store in Decatur was caught on camera.

The surveillance video of it on June 12, 2011 helped police identify one of the suspects as Daniel Wade Moore of Decatur.

Moore is charged with third degree burglary and is due to appear for a settlement docket in Morgan County Court Thursday morning at 9 a.m.

Police say the detail of the surveillance video speaks for itself, capturing an image of a birthmark on Moore’s back, which lead to his subsequent arrest.
Attorneys refer to the settlement docket as “Plea Day”.

Moore’s attorney, Joe Powell told WHNT NEWS 19 over the phone that the docket is designed for defendants to meet with prosecutors and try to reach a plea deal.

Powell said he’s been in close contact with Moore and the two do not have any parameters of what they will or will not accept going into the hearing.

Powell added he’s ready to go to trial on Monday, which has been assigned as Moore’s trial date on the burglary charges.

Moore bonded out of jail within a couple weeks after the burglary, but was then arrested again in October when his bond was revoked.

He’s been in jail ever since.

Thursday will bring a new shot at freedom for him.

Moore has been in and out of jail since 1999, when he was accused of murdering Karen Tipton in Decatur.

He was convicted and sentenced to death for it, but was later acquitted of the charges on a retrial.
