FAYETTEVILLE, North Carolina (WTVD) -- The Fayetteville Police Department says a man is charged with first-degree murder in the death of a decorated United States Army veteran.
Wednesday, January 18, 86-year-old Gerald "Jerry" Gillespie was found dead in an apartment in the 5 block of Briar Circle after his family contacted police because they hadn't heard from him.
Police said 21-year-old Jameel Malik Davidson was captured in Miami by US Marshals. He's also charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Police said Davidson lived in the same apartment complex as Gillespie.
Davidson now faces extradition back to North Carolina from Florida.
