Possible Break in Unsolved Decatur Murder
There's a possible break in an unsolved murder investigation in Decatur.
In August 2011, Caleb Witty, 17, was shot to death while walking home from the Decatur Celebration. Police said he was killed when he jumped in front of his younger sister during an attempted armed robbery.
This week, Detective David Pruitt testified before a Macon County judge that the same gun that was used to kill Witty was also used to kill Billy Rutherford, also in August 2011.
That testimony was in a pre-trial hearing for Daniel Jones, 29, who was arrested in March on possession of a weapon charges.
It's important to note that Jones has not been charged in either murder case.
