    From December 2010:


    Brandon Jerrell Newburn, 25, was ordered to serve two consecutive terms of life in prison, a sentence recommended by prosecutors under a plea agreement...

    Charles Black III, 38, was last seen leaving Betty Joe’s Lounge in Citronelle just after midnight on July 12, 2009, according to the prosecution. At about the same time, Newburn was also spotted exiting the bar, although he wasn’t friends with Black and the two men weren’t at the bar together, according to the prosecution.

    Several days later, Black was found in a grave off Coy Smith Highway across from a church, according to the prosecution, and he had been shot in the head and stabbed in the neck.
