Sheriff Jimmy Harris called it one of the most violent murders he seen in 25 years.
Prosecutors say that the victim, 36 year old Michael Arnold Johnson, was shot more than 20 times with an AK-47 assault rifle at his County Road 578 home in Fyffe.
According to WAFF TV48, prosecutors also cited that McClure has a criminal history – both as an adult and as a juvenile, in their argument not to have youthful offender status granted in the case; meanwhile, a second suspect, 36 year old James Edward Wooten, has also been charged with hindering prosecution.
McClure’s attorney says his client will plead not guilty.
Following Monday’s hearing, McClure was returned to the DeKalb County Detention Center to await trial; a date has yet to be set.
