Selma police make arrest in Christmas Eve slaying

SELMA, AL (WSFA) - A Christmas Eve fight ended with one man dead. Now, Selma police have a suspect in custody.

James Arthur Thomas, 19, was arrested Tuesday and charged with the murder of an as-of-yet unidentified victim. Police won't release the victim's name, but will say he was  in his 20s.
