Decatur police say a man accused in a deadly hit-and-run is now charged with capital murder.
On Oct. 28, 2018, police responded to the 400-block of 12th Avenue NW to find an injured, unconscious man in the roadway. He was later identified as Ricardo Brown.
Brown was taken to the hospital and later died from his injuries. It was determined he’d been injured in a hit-and-run.
With information from witnesses, the driver of the vehicle was identified as Jason Osborn. Police also determined Osborn had robbed Brown for money and illegal narcotics, prior to hitting him with the vehicle.
On Sept. 13, 2019, police obtained two warrants charging Osborn with murder and robbery first-degree. Police say he was already in custody for unrelated charges.
Police say the investigation was presented to a grand jury on Thursday, which returned an indictment to charge Osborn with capital murder.
Osborn is being held in the Morgan County Jail without bond.
