NASHVILLE – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and deputies with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in the arrest of a Gainesboro man, who faces murder and other charges, stemming from a homicide earlier this year.

At the request of 15th District Attorney General Tommy Thompson, on May 11th, TBI Agents joined investigators with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in investigating the homicide of Solomon Minder (DOB 01/26/1947). The victim was found deceased in his McCoinsville Road in Gainesboro. The investigation revealed evidence that a fire had been set inside the home. During the course of the investigation, Agents and investigators developed information that identified Kevin Meadows, an acquaintance of the victim, as the individual responsible for Mr. Minder’s death.

On Wednesday, the Jackson County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Kevin W. Meadows (DOB 02/20/1985) with one count of Felony Murder, one count of Aggravated Arson, two counts of Theft of Property, and two counts of Tampering with Evidence. Meadows was booked in the Jackson County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.
