According to WKRG, Mobile police arrested 38-year-old Jervoris Scarbrough last week and charged him in connection to the death of David Kyles, who was found handcuffed and fatally shot near the intersection of Theodore Dawes Road and Interstate-10.

“It may not alleviate the pain, but certainly the closure,” Paul Prine, Mobile Police Chief told WKRG.

Scarbrough was put into Metro Jail on Dec. 19 on charges of murder and kidnapping. “We had to develop probable cause to effect the arrest, and so I’m confident in my investigators we have the right person,” Prine told WKRG.


According to police, in October 2014, police found Kyles, 29, handcuffed and shot near the intersection of Theodore Dawes Road and Interstate 10. WKRG reported that police said Scarbrough impersonated an officer while pulling Kyles over and killing him.

Prine didn't share details as to how police identified Scarbrough as the killer, simply stating that police continue to go through old files in hopes of solving cases. “To see if there’s anything we’re missing, to see if there’s anything we can follow up, and certainly any tips or leads come in, we’ll follow up on that,” said Prine. “This is an excellent case from 2014 where it shows that MPD is still working these active cases.”

Scarbrough was expected to be in court on Dec. 21.
