Hearing held for Lee Co. man charged with murdering acquaintance, dumping body in well

LEE COUNTY, Ala. (WTVM) - The case of an East Alabama man accused of shooting and stabbing an acquaintance and putting his body in a well is heading to a grand jury.

A Lee County judge determined Wednesday that there is enough evidence for the case against 58-year-old Hubert Sprayberry to move forward.

Sprayberry is currently in the Lee County Jail without bond for the murder of 72-year-old James Clarke. Clarke went missing in December 2019. His body was later found in a well on Lee Road 279 in Beulah.
