Deputies have arrested third suspect in murder of man found naked and wrapped in sheet in back seat of a car in rural Jefferson County
BREAKING NEWS: A Crimestoppers tip led to the arrest of a man wanted for murder in the case of a man found naked and wrapped in a sheet in the back seat of a car in rural Jefferson County.

Deputies have arrested 27-year-old Cody Lewis in Pennington. Lewis is the third suspect in the murder case.

Lewis was taken into custody around 7 p.m. Thursday by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office with the assistance of several other agencies.

Twenty-one year-old Christopher Harmon and 31-year-old Yianni Mihail are also behind bars in the Jefferson County Jail, each charged with Moyer's murder.

Man and woman indicted in AT&T robbery in Beaumont
KFDM News - The Jefferson County grand jury indicted two people on charges of robbing the AT&T store on Dowlen Road.

Twenty-one year-old Jamail Wallace of Beaumont and 33-year-old Latashi Henry of Groves, who was an employee of the store, could face up to life in prison if convicted of first degree felony aggravated robbery.

In March, police arrested Wallace and Henry for the robbery, which occurred in February.

A gunman approached a clerk as she was opening the store at about 8:30 in the morning on Feb. 17.

The gunman pointed a gun at the clerk's head and forced the woman into a back room where other employees had locked themselves inside.

Investigators say he threatened to shoot the clerk if they didn't open the door.

Police say the gunman took a deposit off the table when he entered the room and made the manager open the safe and give him money.
