The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals affirmed the murder conviction of a Selma man on Oct. 13.

Vadarius Hall’s murder conviction was affirmed by the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals, according to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson.

Hall is serving a life sentence in prison for the murder of Jermaine Tarver during a card game in 2016. Hall shot and killed Tarver at a home in the Selmont community. He was sentenced to life in prison on July 10, 2019.

Jackson said showed up to a house where Tarver was playing a card game and after a conversation, Hall shot Tarver, a Lowndesboro resident. Tarver was later taken to the hospital and later died from the injuries.

“This is another gunslinger we’ve gotten off the streets,” Jackson said. “It was a brutal murder, he deserved a life sentence.”
