Shortly afterward, two suspects were charged with murder in Deberry's death.

However, a jury deadlocked when one of the suspects, James Courtney, 49, was tried, and a conviction was not obtained.

Investigative work has continued since the trial, and Courtney was re-arrested Tuesday evening and charged with murder in connection with Deberry's death.

Police have said the case remains under investigation.
