Three men are behind bars in connection with a murder in Ozark earlier this week.

It was a tragic scene early Tuesday morning as yellow tape lined the home of 24-year-old Miles Ansley who was shot in the head and later died.

Over the past 48 hours, investigators have been working together and made three arrests in connection to Ansley's murder.

Police Chief Tony Spivey says the first suspect, 31-year-old Donovan Duane Beaty from Ozark was initially thought to be a witness, but later found he was allegedly involved.

Late Wednesday night, investigators found the other two suspects 23-year-old Alvin Facion Jr. and 21-year-old Darrell Lashep Facion through telephone records with Beaty.

Chief Spivey says the motive was robbery and the evidence points to drugs.

Chief Spivey says a tip from the public helped lead the investigation.

The three suspects are currently in the Dale County Jail without bond.

Their trial date has yet to be set.

All three men face capital murder charges and could get the death penalty.
