Wilcox County man charged with capital murder

A Wilcox County man is charged with capital murder on Wednesday from a crime that occurred four years ago.

Tremaine Nickerson is charged with capital murder from a 2016 Cold Case in Wilcox County, according to Fourth Judicial District Attorney Michael Jackson.

Jackson said the murder motive appears to involve the victim’s BMW car. Jackson also said the Clarke County citizen disappeared in 2016 and Nickerson was driving the vehicle containing blood.

Nickerson is currently in the Wilcox County Jail with no bond.

The investigation covered three counties: Wilcox, Marengo and Clarke. Jackson said the investigation is ongoing.

Jackson said Nickerson will be arraigned over the next several days.
