A Center Point man is now charged in a 2012 murder in Pinson.

Deputies found the body of Matthew Joshua Hale near the edge of the road on Sharon Church Road on April 16, 2012.  He had been shot to death.

Investigators followed up on leads, but they never made an arrest.

Detectives received new information in March of 2013 that led them to a suspect.

Demarquis Glennerd Brown, 19, is now charged with capital murder.  He was already in the Jefferson County Jail on charges of trafficking marijuana, possessing a controlled substance, carrying a pistol without a license, and failing to appear on a charge of theft of property.  He is now being held without bond.
