A Talladega County Jail corrections officer is in jail himself, accused in the slaying of another man who was found shot to death in his truck one week ago.
Sheriff Jimmy Kilgore today announced the arrest of 29-year-old Cecil Rashad Chappell. He is charged in the June 19 killing of 66-year-old Doyle Ivey Ingram.
Authorities today said Chappell had been involved in a business transaction with Ingram, and Ingram had gone to Chappell's home in an effort to discuss the matter. Investigators believe Chappell shot Ingram at his home, and then loaded the body into Ingram's truck and left it off Nottingham Road.
A murder warrant was issued this morning. Chappell is being held in the Coosa Count Jail because of his position at the Talladega County Jail. Judge Jeb Fannin set his bond at $500,000.
Kilgore issued this statement today: "I would like to thank Capt. Bill Kennedy and his entire investigative team for their diligent work and long hours spent on this investigation and note the investigation is continuing."
He also thanked District Attorney Investigator Mike McBurnett, the Talladega County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, Lincoln police Investigator Matt Hill, the Talladega Police Department and Steve Vogel with the state probation and parole department for their roles in the investigation.
