Afton Man Charged With Murder In Weekend Shooting

An Afton man charged with second-degree murder was scheduled to appear today in General Sessions Court.

Ronald Eugene Brickey, 49, of 1760 West Pines Road, was charged early Saturday following the death of Samuel Eanes, sheriff's Detective Sgt. Jason Taylor said in a report.

Brickey "did knowingly kill" Eanes by shooting him in the head with a 9 millimeter pistol, the report said.

The shooting happened at 1760 West Pines Road.

Sheriff's Steve Burns said this morning that the victim and Brickey knew each other.

Eanes and a woman had apparently been invited to the house by Brickey before the shooting, Burns said.

Alcohol use was an apparent factor in the shooting, the sheriff said.

"They were acquaintances, and they were invited there (and Eanes and Brickey) got into a dispute. Alcohol was involved, and it resulted in one being killed," Burns said.

Deputies were called to the scene at 12:41 a.m. Saturday, Burns said.

The alleged murder weapon was recovered, Burns said.

Brickey is an employee of the Washington County Highway Department, according to the arrest report.

Bond for Brickey was set at $250,000 pending his court appearance today.
