McCoy indicted for murder, state to seek death penalty

Thomas Ford McCoy, accused in the April 10 shooting death of Baker resident Curtis Brown, has been indicted on a charge of first degree premeditated murder with a firearm. A Walton County grand jury returned the indictment on May 11 before Circuit Judge Kelvin Wells. State Attorney Bill Eddins has released a statement saying his office intends to seek the death penalty if McCoy is convicted as charged.
McCoy, 42, was arrested in Tampa on April 21, having fled the scene of the shooting, which occurred in DeFuniak Springs. He was recently transported to DeFuniak Springs following hospital treatment for wounds sustained during federal marshals’ attempt to arrest him in Tampa. He is reportedly still recovering from those wounds.
