CULLMAN - A second person has been arrested and charged with the September 2016 murder of 33-year-old Leslie Clements. Kayla S. Thursby was arrested in Tuscaloosa on an unrelated warrant early Tuesday evening. She is now charged with murder and first-degree theft of property. Thursby was transported back to Cullman by the Cullman Police Department (CPD) Tuesday night.

Jerome Flanigan, 36, who, along with Thursby, was a suspect in the Clements’ case for some time, was arrested Sunday night and charged with murder, first-degree theft of property and second-degree arson.

Clements’ body was found in an apartment in the 1000 block of Fuller Street, on the southwest side of the city of Cullman, on Friday, Sept. 16, 2016. Authorities declared the death suspicious, and the body was sent to Huntsville for autopsy.

That same day, Flanigan and Thursby were identified as persons of interest by the CPD.
