Montgomery Police Department has charged Mitchell Call, 29, and Abigail Peace, 25, of Kingsport in the homicide of Darrell Rudolph, 33, who was fatally wounded Sept. 19, in Alabama.

According to information from News Channel 11’s ABC/CBS affiliate in Montgomery, Alabama, the police department announced the arrest Monday, Oct. 15. 

In a release provided by the department, both suspects were taken into custody in Missouri Sept. 26 by the U.S. Marshals Metropolitan Task Force in St. Louis, Missouri, and the St. Louis County Police Department Bureau of Crimes against Persons.

Both were extradited back to Montgomery Oct.13.

Following their arrests, Call and Peace were transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility, where each was being held under a $150,000 bond.

On Wednesday, Sept. 19, at about 5:45 p.m. MPD and Fire Medics responded to the 500 block of Rosa Parks Avenue after receiving a report of an unresponsive male. There, they located the victim, Rudolph, who had sustained a fatal injury from an assault and was pronounced dead at the scene.

MPD’s investigation indicates that Rudolph had become a recent acquaintance of the suspects. Further investigation identified Call and Peace as the suspects.
