MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – A second man has been charged in a murder in Murfreesboro.

According to a release from police, 28-year-old Dimetrius Raymond Ford, is set to be served warrants for first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder once he’s transferred to Rutherford County.

Ford was arrested by federal agents in Detroit, Michigan in late March. He was taken to the Bledsoe County Correctional Complex in Pikeville, Tennessee on a parole violation in late April.

Ford was recently moved to the Northwest Correctional Complex in Lake County, Tennessee where he is being held without bond.
