COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia man charged in the killing of an Alabama deputy sheriff reportedly has been booked into a Georgia jail 16 times in the past 11 years.

The Ledger-Enquirer of Columbus, Ga., reported Sunday that 31-year-old Gregory Lance Henderson was on parole from a 2007 drug conviction when charged last week with capital murder in the death of Lee County Deputy James Anderson.

The Columbus newspaper said Henderson was sentenced in 2007 to serve three years of a 15-year sentence for a drug conviction, but was paroled after 15 months.

He was arrested Thursday after being accused of accelerating a vehicle and striking the deputy after a traffic stop.
