Seven suspects are now behind bars in connection with the 2017 murder and hanging of a Tullahoma man.

David Edward Steele, 33, was reported missing Oct. 3, 2017. Several days later, his body was found hanging from a tree in Franklin County. An autopsy showed that Steele died of asphyxiation with a contributory cause of a gunshot wound to the leg.

On Nov. 13, the Coffee County grand jury handed up a 10-count indictment against seven individuals, but by the end of that month, only four had been captured: Bruce Edward Dorsett Jr., Shawna R. Haney, Voltaire Xavier Hickerson and Michael Andrew Taylor.

Now, with the arrests of Jamie Wilson Holland, Bryan Dudley and Miguel Sanders, all seven are in custody.

Sanders’ name remains redacted on the official indictment paperwork received from the Coffee County Court Clerk’s office, but District Attorney General Craig Northcott confirmed Wednesday that Sanders was the last from the original indictment to be arrested. Sanders was captured in Putnam County on Jan. 24.

Sanders, 45, of Nashville, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence, coercion of a witness, two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated assault and employing a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. He is being held in Coffee County Jail in lieu of a $750,000 bond.

Jamie Wilson Holland, 38, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence and coercion of a witness. He is being held in Coffee County Jail in lieu of a $200,000 bond.

Bryan Ray Dudley, 37, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence and coercion of a witness. Dudley is being held in Franklin County jail in lieu of a $250,000 bond.

The charges against the remaining four suspects are as follows:

Bruce Edward Dorsett Jr., 32, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence, coercion of a witness and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. Dorsett is being held in Coffee County Jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

Shawna R. Haney, 44, of Tullahoma, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence, coercion of a witness and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. Haney is being held in the Coffee County Jail in lieu of $750,000 bond.

Voltaire Xavier Hickerson, 38, is charged with two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. Hickerson is being held in the Coffee County Jail in lieu of a $700,000 bond.

Michael Andrew Taylor, 32, of Tullahoma, is charged with one count of first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.  Taylor is being held in the Coffee County Jail in lieu of $400,000 bond.

According to Northcott, Steele was first detained in his home. When he tried to escape, he was shot. Then he was taken across the Franklin County line and hanged about 75 yards off the road in a wooded area near the intersection of UTSI Road and Spring Creek Road in Estill Springs.

Franklin County officials handled the initial investigation. This summer, Northcott said, Franklin County District Attorney Mike Taylor agreed to turn the investigation over to the Coffee County District Attorney’s office for prosecution in Coffee County, where the crime was initiated.

The next court date set for this case is Feb. 27.
