Beathard was the brother of San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard. The older Beathard left the team Saturday after his brother’s death and missed the team’s game that night against the Los Angeles Rams at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

It is unclear at this time if he’ll also miss the season-finale against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.

Initially, the authorities believed there were four person of interests from a video. However, after doing their investigation, it was clear to them that Mosley was the prime suspect.

An argument involving a woman led to the attack, police said.

The authorities received information and found Mosley at a residence on Petway Rd. There was police around the residence before he surrendered.

Besides the Metro Nashville Police Department, Metro Nashville Police Department SWAT, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force & Midtown Hills Precinct detectives assisted in the arrest. Also, the Cheatham County Detectives also assisted in the search.

According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, Mosley is facing two criminal homicide charges. He is also facing a third charge, an attempted criminal homicide charge.

If conviction, he could potentially spend the rest of his life behind bars.
