Florida man arrested, charged, in eight year Alabama cold case

A Florida man has been arrested and charged after a murder almost eight years ago in Moulton, Alabama.

Lawrence County Sheriff, Gene Mitchell, said investigators in Santa Rosa County, Florida, uncovered information that led to the arrest of 59-year-old Garry Ray Lindsey.

Lindsey was arrested, Thursday, at his home in Milton, Florida. He's been charged with the murder in the shooting death of Roy Oliver at his home in Moulton in February 2006.

Lindsey waived extradition to Alabama and has been booked into the Lawrence County Jail.

Court records did not indicate if Lindsey has acquired legal representation.

Mitchell says Lindsey was a suspect early on in the case, but there was never any evidence to charge him. Lawrence County had been working with Santa Rosa County authorities for the past five months.
