By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  Authorities in Dallas County say a man is behind bars -- after a home invasion turns deadly.

Sheriff Harris Huffman says 18 year old John Murray, Jr. is charged with capital murder in the case.

Huffman says investigators received information Wednesday night about a possible homicide at a trailer on the 700 block of County Road 74. He says when deputies arrived at the residence, they found the body of 58 year old Steven Lee Sizemore.

"It appeared that he had been shot one time in the back of the head," said Huffman. "It also appeared that this probably happened several days ago."

"Mr. Murray was brought up to the Sheriff's Office and questioned by investigators and we got a full statement and confession from him."

Huffman says this is the second murder in Dallas County this year. He says Murray is being held in the Dallas County Jail without bond.
