SEALE, AL (WTVM) -

An arrest has been made in the homicide investigation of Eric Anderson's death in Seale, Ala.

Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor confirms the arrest of Anthony Lavell Carter Jr., a.k.a. "A.J." Carter, of Fort Mitchell, Ala. on murder charges in connection with Anderson's death.

Another suspect for the murder is still on the run. Russell County Sheriff's Office issued a Capital Murder Warrant for 24-year-old Jeramiah Levi Sokolgz, a.k.a. "Red".

The method of murder appeared to be blunt force with round object, like a baseball bat or pipe, according to Taylor.

Taylor says Anderson knew Sokolgz though playing video games together. He says the suspected motive was robbery of electronics in Anderson's home.

All of the missing items from the home have been recovered.

Carter claims he did not know Anderson very well, and he says he never went inside the trailer, but was present for the murder.

Authorities describe Sokolgz as a black male, 6'3" and 170 lbs. He was last seen wearing a red shirt, black shorts, black shoes, and a black Falcons ball cap.

Authorities ask anyone with information on the subject to contact Russell County Sheriff's Office day or night at (334)298-6535.
