TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - A Talladega County Jail corrections officer has been accused of killing a Talladega man who was found shot dead last week in his pickup truck.

Multiple media outlets report that 29-year-old Cecil R. Chappell was arrested on Friday in connection to the June 19 slaying of 66-year-old Doyle Ingram.

Authorities say Chappell had been involved in a business transaction with Ingram, and Ingram had gone to Chappell’s home in an effort to discuss the matter. Investigators say Chappell shot Ingram at his home, and then loaded the body into Ingram’s truck and left it off Nottingham Road.

Chappell is being held in the Coosa County Jail on a $500,000 bond. It was not immediately clear if Chappell has hired an attorney.
