Florence Police announced the arrest of Marcus Weakley for the June 10th murder of Patton “Huggie” Shipley.

A grand jury indicted Weakley for the death of Shipley last week, and Weakley turned himself in this past weekend. 

Shipley was found shot to death at a home on Long Lane. Weakley is held in the Lauderdale County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.

According to court records, Weakley was arrested back in 2009 and charged with shooting into an unnoccuped vehicle, reckless endangerment and menacing.
