Updated Aug 31, 2019

A man has been arrested in the murder of a 77-year-old Bessemer man, police said Friday.

Stephaughn Jerrod Joseph is being held in the Jefferson County Jail without bond on charges of capital murder, theft and burglary in the killing of David Clifton Harper.

Harper was found dead in his home late Tuesday morning by Bessemer police officers and determined he was the victim of a homicide, according to Bessemer police Lt. Christian Clemons. Harper’s car was also missing from his home on the 1500 block of Dartmouth Avenue.

Joseph was spotted by officers a few blocks from the crime scene. The suspect then fled on foot and “unlawfully entered a home” during the pursuit, police said. Joseph was eventually captured, arrested and taken to the Jefferson County Jail.
