Ryan Baker Huntsville Al
A judge today dismissed the murder case against one of two men charged in a fatal shooting at a Huntsville motel. Shaquan Horton’s murder charge was dismissed after District Judge Patty Demos heard testimony from a Huntsville police investigator. The judge said prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence for probable cause that Horton was guilty of murder.
Horton, 27, was charged along with his brother Timothy Pullen in the July 13 shooting death of Ryan Baker. Baker, 40, of Huntsville, was staying at the Budget Inn on University Drive when he was killed. Horton was connected to the case because he drove Pullen to and from the scene, the authorities said. But, defense attorney Brian Clark argued that prosecutors and police didn’t have any evidence to prove Horton knew in advance about the murder or Pullen’s plan to rob Baker.
Because police charged Horton with intentional murder, the judge said they hadn’t met their burden of proof. Prosecutors can still take Horton’s case to a grand jury for consideration of indictment. Prosecutors could ask the grand jury to charge Horton with felony murder, which doesn’t require intent to kill.
It took weeks for police to identify and charge Horton and Pullen in the motel killing. Surveillance footage from the motel and nearby businesses showed a man get out of a 2017 Hyundai SanteFe. Huntsville police released to the press surveillance photos and asked the public to help identify the man. Mullins testified that after investigators knew the man to be Pullen.
They talked to law enforcement in Lincoln County, Tennessee, where the suspect was being held on unrelated charges. Pullen remains in a Tennessee jail. He comes back to Huntsville after serving his time there. In a jail phone call, Pullen talked to his brother Horton.
Mullins testified that Horton told Pullen not to say anything about the Huntsville case. Police connect Horton to the case when they find out he is renting a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe during the time of the killing, Mullins testified.
