BAY MINETTE, Ala. – Authorities say two members of a suburban Detroit-based motorcycle gang that has a chapter in Alabama are accused of killing a fellow member in the Rosinton community, northeast of Robertsdale.
Baldwin County sheriff's officials say 30-year-old Adam "Sandman" Mayton of Newbern and Fred Weiss of Northport are charged with murder in the death of 54-year-old Samuel Dixson of Milton, Fla.
The Press-Register reports Mayton and Weiss were taken into custody Wednesday night by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office. It wasn't known Friday whether they have attorneys.
Authorities say Dixson's body was found around noon Wednesday in eastern Baldwin County after firefighters responded to a blaze that destroyed a mobile home.
Baldwin County Sheriff Huey "Hoss" Mack said investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the death.
