The trial of a man charged with murder in connection to the 2016 shooting of a Mercer University basketball player was postponed this week due to allegations that he could also be linked to a shooting in Alabama, the Macon Telegraph reported.

Damion Deray Henderson, who pleaded not guilty in the Feb. 2, 2016, shooting death of Jibri Bryan, may have been involved in a December 2015 shooting in Madison, a city just west of Huntsville and not far from the Alabama-Tennessee border, authorities told the newspaper.

District Attorney David Cooke told the Telegraph his office is asking a judge to allow information about the Alabama incident into evidence to show Henderson’s “intent and motive in our case.”

Jarvis Clinton Miller, who was in the car with Bryan and shot in the neck, was also arrested and charged with felony murder in connection with the shooting, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.
