COLUMBUS, Ga. – Local officials confirm that a fight is forcing one of the suspects in the Double Churches Park murder to move to another jail.

Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr says 21-year-old Akevious Powell had to be transferred to the Harris County Jail for safety reasons.

Powell and 19-year-old Jacquawn Clark are currently in jail.
