Attorney Fingers Another Man In Johnia Berry Murder

Knoxville (WVLT) -- After three years of trying to find Johnia Berry's killer, investigators finally made an arrest back in September.

Noah Thomas Cox, 24 has a lengthy criminal record including convictions for burglary and theft.

He is the subject of a motion filed by attorney Greg Isaacs.
