Story by: Nate Tabak, Canada Correspondent
A man was charged Thursday with shooting a truck driver on I-269 outside Memphis, Tennessee, after an in-cab video captured the suspected killer, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office said.
James Huddleston, 27, was arrested after his father identified him as the person in images captured by an in-cab camera in Dajuante Stuart’s tractor-trailer, WKRN news reported, citing court documents.
Stuart, 30, was found shot to death in his tractor-trailer on Wednesday. Authorities subsequently released images of a person of interest from video recorded on Stuart’s in-cab camera.
An arrest warrant states that the video shows the man talking with Stuart before entering the cab, WKRN reported. After a gunshot is heard, the man drags Stuart and shoots him again, the warrant states, according to WKRN.
Huddleston is charged with first-degree murder.
