According to the PCSO, officers were called to the 90 Block of County Road 87 before dawn Friday morning.

Inside, 63-year-old Willie Lindsey, Jr. was found dead inside his home, suffering from gunshot wounds.

“Our investigators quickly identified Erick Lindsey as the suspect and took him into custody without incident later Friday morning,” Sheriff Jordan Powell said. “The investigation remains ongoing, but we do not believe anyone else was involved. I’d like to thank the Aliceville Police Department, the Carrollton Police Department and the Coroner for responding to the scene and assisting in the investigation.”

Lindsey, an Aliceville man, is being held without bond and has been charged with two counts of capital murder during the course of a burglary.
