Rutherford County District Attorney Jennings Jones will represent the State in a murder trial scheduled to take place in March of 2022.

The trial involves the death of former Christiana resident Terry Barber, who was killed in his home during a robbery in June of 2019. The 68-year-old victim was a long time Rutherford County resident and well known for selling college memorabilia and SEC clothing. His lifeless body was discovered when a friend of Mr. Barber went to his Christiana home to check on him.

Detectives from the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office report that Barber was located on the floor of his Walnut Grove Road home. His hands and feet were bound together.

The investigation led to the arrest of three individuals, according to the District Attorney...

In addition to the murder charges, the trio also face charges of Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Burglary, Especially Aggravated Kidnapping and the fraudulent use of the victims debit card.

Court documents show the three suspects reportedly drove to the victims home where detectives say they worked together in robbing Barber, who they allegedly tied up and strangled to death.

District Attorney Jones will be assisted by Trevor Lynch during the trial, which will take place March 21st through the 25th.
