MEMPHIS, Tenn – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have arrested and charged two men in the ongoing investigation into a home invasion and homicide in Covington earlier this month.
At the request of 25th District Attorney General Mike Dunavant, TBI Agents began investigating the death of Timothy Edwards on January 19th, shortly after officers from the Covington Police Department discovered the body of the 38-year-old in his Douglas Street home. During the course of the investigation, with the assistance of the Covington Police Department and the Tipton County Sheriff’s Department, Agents developed information leading to Eddie Lee Poindexter III and Armoni De’Quan Hall as two of the individuals responsible for forcing their way into the family’s home and shooting Edwards.
On Monday Agents arrested Poindexter, and on Wednesday they arrested Hall, charging both with one count of Felony First Degree Murder, one count of Especially Aggravated Burglary, one count of Criminal Attempted Especially Aggravated Robbery and one count of Possessing a Firearm During the Commission or Attempt to Commit a Dangerous Felony. At the time of this release, both men were in the custody of the Tipton County Jail without bond. The investigation is ongoing, with the possibility of additional arrests and charges.
