From the CBS 8 West Alabama Newsroom-- A Hayneville man is behind bars charged with capital murder in connection with the disappearance of Willie James Patterson. Hayneville Police Chief Kelvin Mitchell says Alfonzo Green is charged in the case. Willie James Patterson left home on Christmas Eve and never returned home. Mitchell says information gathered from the investigation into Patterson's disappearance led investigators to Green. "This is an ongoing investigation and by no means have we closed the case, said Mitchell. “There could be other arrests, but at this time we feel like we got the main suspect involved in the disappearance of Willie Patterson." Green is being held in the Lowndes County Jail. No bond has been set.
