The man accused of murdering Danny Tavares was transported from Shelby County, Tenn., to the Attala County Jail early Monday evening by Kosciusko Police Department and the Attala County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff Tim Nail served Theodus Barnett with the indictment when they arrived at the jail.
Tavares, 52, was found dead on May 25, 2007, at his used car dealership, Tavares Motors, on Highway 12. He was robbed, beaten to death and suffocated.
Barnett was charged in February 2011 after the evidence collected at the car dealership linked him to the crime.
A trial date of February 4 has been set.
