A Chattanooga man who already was convicted of manslaughter now faces a homicide charge in a 2012 slaying.
Local police recently arrested 29-year-old Stephen "Dollar Bill" Mobley, who remains at the Hamilton County Jail on a $810,000 bond.
Mobley is accused of killing 29-year-old Gregory Watkins at a gas station on Brainerd Road on June 1, 2012.
Eyewitnesses told police they watched Mobley approach the driver's side of a Toyota sedan Watkins was in and open fire.
Watkins died from gunshot wounds to the chest.
A second person, Lashonda Gonzalez, was wounded, according to a Chattanooga Police Department arrest report.
Police initially arrested 23-year-old Stephen Hill and charged him with Watkins' death. Court records show the case later was dismissed because of a lack of proof.
Mobley previously was convicted in a 2005 homicide case involving 20-year-old Elton Deandra Hall, who was shot and killed at College Hill Courts, court records show. He was sentenced to six years on a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter and released in June 2010, state records show.
Mobley now faces charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, reckless endangerment, aggravated assault and unlicensed carrying or possessing of a weapon.
His next court date is July 16 before Hamilton County General Sessions Court Judge Christine Sell.
