A suspect has been arrested for the weekend murder of a Dothan man.

Henry County Sheriff Lawton Ed Armstrong identified the suspect as 28-year-old James Stuckey of Dothan.

Stuckey was picked-up by Houston County deputies around noon Tuesday. He was later turned over to Henry County investigators.

Stuckey is accused in the shooting death of 23-year-old Charles Hatfield of Dothan. The victim's body was found off a Henry County dirt road Saturday morning.
