Nearly a decade later, with the Opelika Police Department saying it was a case it had been continually investigating, an arrest was made Wednesday.

The Opelika Police Department says it arrested a man and charged him with a homicide dating back to April of 2004.

Wednesday afternoon, investigators took 33-year-old Opelika resident Timothy Lamar Chambers into custody and charged him for outstanding warrants as well as murder and robbery in the first degree.

Police say they took Chambers into custody without incident around 1:30 p.m. at 14th Street and First Avenue. He was taken to the Opelika Police Department for interviewing before being transferred to the Lee County Detention Facility.

Chambers is charged in connection with the April 4, 2004 homicide of Kevin Earl Webb, also of Opelika. Authorities were called to King's Trailer Park on Dale Avenue around 2:30 p.m. that day in reference to an assault.

When officers arrived, they found Webb inside the home. He'd been shot and was pronounced dead on the scene.
