A man wanted in connection with the death of a Moneta man has been arrested and charged with grand larceny and second degree murder, according to a release from Bedford County Sheriff Mike Miller.
Dalton Holbrook of Greenwood, Indiana was taken into custody June 6 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in connection with the death of John Menna, 72, Miller said.
A visitor to Menna’s home, which is in the 6000 block of White House Road, called 911 on June 4 after finding Menna suffering from serious injuries, Miller said. When officers arrived to the scene, they found Menna dead.
Holbrook is also accused of taking a white 2014 Hyundai Sonata that belonged to Menna, Miller said.
In the June 6 release, Miller said bond for Holbrook was being determined.
In addition to the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office and the commonwealth’s attorney, law enforcement from Georgia, Tenneesse, FBI and U.S. Marshals Service joined in the search for Holbrook, Miller said.
