FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

New court documents support the alleged pre-meditated murder of Shoals coach Brioni "Bree" Rutland.

An amended complaint was filed when charges against Jeremy Williams were upgraded from murder to capital murder.

The document states through witness testimony and bank statements investigators determined Jeremy Williams stole over $1,000 from the victim during the course of his murder.

Earlier this month, Florence Police upgraded the charges to capital murder against Williams in Rutland's death. Rutland's family reported him missing just days before Thanksgiving. Authorities pulled his body from the Tennessee River a few days later near the Old Railroad Bridge.

Police said Williams killed Rutland at his Florence home and then dumped the body.
