Man charged in Marion County slaying had 2011 homicide conviction

A man charged in a Sunday shooting in Marion County, Tennessee, was on probation for a previous homicide conviction in the shooting of another man more than a decade ago.

Jarrod DeJuan Pickett, 39, is facing allegations in the slaying of Corey "C.J." James Havner, 29, who was fatally shot in the front yard of a home in the area of Old Shellmound Road near Nickajack Lake, southwest of the Guild community, Sheriff Ronnie "Bo" Burnett said Tuesday in a phone interview.

"They were arguing over a car and, evidently, Pickett pulled a pistol and shot Havner," Burnett said. "It's my understanding that's the vehicle Pickett left in."
