34-year old Joseph Hall is charged with the shooting of Andrew Jones, killed while walking to downtown store early one morning.

“Mr. Hall has been  in the investigator’s sights since the murder but they have not been able to crack the case.  Through the course of the investigation a big break occurred and allowed the pieces needed to get the arrest warrant and charge Mr. Hall,” Dothan police said in a statement.

Officers used flash-bang grenades and searched two homes on Linden Street in Dothan. Jones was found sleeping in one of those homes. A variety of drugs including crack-cocaine, marijuana, heroin and ecstasy pills were also recovered.

Police did not reveal a motive for Jones murder but do predict more charges will be filed.

Jones is held without bond.
