VALLEY HEAD, AL (WAFF) - A 72-year-old man has been charged with killing someone else from his DeKalb County town. The murder took place in Georgia last week.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced the arrest of Sam Street. He was arrested Friday morning at his home in Valley Head. DeKalb County Jail staff confirm he was taken there then extradited to Georgia.

Street is accused of killing Justin Alfrey on Dec. 14. Alfrey, also from Valley Head, was found shot to death in his vehicle at 106 Highway 11 in Rising Fawn, Dade County, Georgia.

Investigators say witnesses described a Chevrolet truck leaving the area close to where Alfrey was found.

After Street was identified as the suspect, Georgia investigators obtained arrest warrants, which were executed at his Alabama home Friday morning.

Street’s charges include murder, aggravated assault, and possession of firearm during commission of a felony.
