A Butler County family can't believe that the man convicted of their loved one's death has been allowed to leave prison and work near where they live and where the crime happened.
DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WAFF)- The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department has arrested two people for the murder of a man who was found dead inside his burnt home.
Authorities said they arrested 20-year-old Billy Ray Justice of Blountsville and 17-year-old Richard Sharp Shelton of Boaz Tuesday night and charged them with capital murder.
On Sunday afternoon, the Geraldine fire department and other agencies were called to a house fire on County Road 58 near Asbury. There, fire investigators found 63-year-old Jerry Neal Burt dead inside the home.
His body was sent to Huntsville for an autopsy, and the preliminary reported indicated that Burt had been murdered.
Investigators said Justice and Sharp allegedly went to Burt's home to rob him of cash and prescription medications, and ended up shooting Burt multiple times.
"A lot of folks in the community liked Jerry and wanted justice in this, and we did too," said DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris.
Sheriff Harris says the men knew Burt because Shelton's mother was Burt's house keeper, and knew he was ill and had medication.
DeKalb County sheriff's investigators said the suspects then tried to destroy the crime scene by setting it on fire and then hide evidence by dumping it over a bridge on Highway 75.
