A Dalton man was extradited from Arizona to the Floyd County Jail this week, according to reports.

John Henry Wetherington, Jr., age twenty-seven, is charged in the murder of Chattooga County resident Nicholas Shropshire on April 18, 2016.  Reports at the time indicate that Wetherington and another suspect robbed and beat Shrophsire during a drug deal on Floyd Springs Road.  

The suspects stole $1500 during the robbery. Shropshire was picked up by EMT's but later died from his injuries.

Weatherington was arrested in Arizona last week on  outstanding warrants from Georgia.
