According to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson, Rayford was having a party — when two females got into an argument in front of his house. And when he went out and told them they had to leave — he was shot.

Jackson said that Rayford was shot eight times, including the head. Jackson said that the bond was set high.

Jackson said that Selma Attorney Brandon Wooten will be Moseley’s attorney. Moseley’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 2 in the Dallas County Courthouse.

This is the 20th murder in Dallas County for 2021, including 17 in Selma.
