After an eight month murder investigation, police in Albertville made an arrest in a brutal murder case.
Investigators arrested Larry Beason of Gadsden. He is charged with the murder of 28-year-old Anshika Radford at an apartment complex on George Wallace Drive in Albertville.
Radford was stabbed multiple times on May 25th, 2012. Amy O'Connor is a neighbor and is glad there's finally been an arrest in the case. "It's a relief really that he's caught and behind bars where he deserves to be," O'Connor said.
Police haven't given a motive for the crime. Chief Doug Pollard says officers arrested Beason based on witness descriptions. "That's what we always tell people. If you see something strange, call us and let us know because we can't be everywhere all the time. These people being witnesses to what they saw that morning led us to this" Pollard said.
