STEWART COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — Another person has now been arrested on charges related to last year’s seven-day manhunt for double-murder suspect Kirby Wallace in Montgomery and Stewart counties.

Stewart County Sheriff Frankie Gray told News 2 that David Dover was charged Monday with evidence tampering and accessory after the fact in connection with the Wallace case.

According to the TBI, the charges against Dover, 26, stem from a homicide on September 23 of last year on Rorie Hollow Road in Indian Mound.

Wallace is charged in that murder. He is suspected of attacking a couple and setting their home on fire, killing Brenda Smith.

The manhunt for Wallace started four days later.

Wallace was also accused of assaulting an elderly woman inside her house on River Road in Montgomery County.

On October 1, authorities said he then killed a man and stole his truck near Poplar Springs Road.

Wallace was eventually captured on October 5. Investigators said he had been hiding in rugged terrain near the Stewart-Montgomery county line.

The Stewart County grand jury already returned indictments in January, charging Derek Eugene Summers and Mindy Elaine Harris with one count of accessory after the fact.
