Jacksonville man now facing capital murder charge in death of coach
The man accused of fatally shooting Stacy Hunter, a well known Jacksonville coach and mentor, was indicted on capital murder charges.
Jimmy Deshawn Mosley, 24, of Jacksonville, was indicted by a grand jury on Dec. 17, officials with the Cherokee County District Attorney's office said.
Mosley is accused of shooting Hunter at his nightclub, Stacy's Club, just after 4 a.m. Oct. 20. Hunter died at the scene.
Police believe Mosley also may have tried to steal money from Hunter, officials with the Jacksonville Police Department said in October.
"(Mosley) has a history of violence," Jacksonville Sgt. Daniel Franklin said. "He has several cases that have been filed in the past for him pulling a gun on somebody or threatening to kill somebody."
Officials in the district attorney's office said Wednesday Mosley was still in jail with a $250,000 bond. No trial date has been set and a judge has not been assigned to the case.
A capital murder charge carries the potential punishment of life in prison or the death penalty.
