HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Funeral arrangements were set for a Huntsville man murdered last week.

Family members said a public viewing will be held Sunday for 20-year-old James Winters, Jr. at the Royal Funeral Home. This will last from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Another public viewing will be held Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

Winters's funeral will be held at 1 p.m. at the Saint Bartley Primitive Baptist Church. A vigil was held on Wednesday to remember the young victim.

Winters was shot and killed Monday night at the Monarch Apartment complex on Patton Road. Investigators believe an argument led to the gunfire.

21-year-old Jordan Baker was arrested in connection with this crime. He is charged with capital murder.

Baker was one of five people shot at the Benchwarmer bar in Huntsville the week before. Police have not said if the incidents are connected.
