(Murfreesboro, TN) WGNS has more news on the murder of a young man that occurred in Murfreesboro a little over 26-months ago. Looking back to the initial call to dispatch, Murfreesboro Police responded to a shooting on North Tennessee Boulevard at Stonewall Boulevard on October 24, 2020. At the intersection, responding officers located the body of 22-year-old Blake Bolton.

MPD Detective Albert Miles was tapped as the lead investigator of the case. Three days after the murder occurred, a criminal warrant was issued for 19-year-old Cody Cain Gilliam.  Three months later, Gilliam was located and arrested. He was booked into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on February 4, 2021.  Detective Miles officially charged Gilliam with First Degree Murder.

Gilliam, who is now 21-years-old, was later indicted by a Rutherford County Grand Jury. Following his indictment, the Grand Jury charged the suspect with First Degree Murder, Especially Aggravated Robbery, Burglary to an Automobile, Possession of Methamphetamine with the Intent to Distribute, Employment of a Weapon During the Commission of a Dangerous Felony and Conspiracy to Commit the Above.

A status hearing is scheduled to take place on March 7th of this year (2023). On that date, the courts will hear from the attorney representing Gilliam, while also hearing from the state to determine if each party is ready to proceed to trial. It’s not uncommon for the courts to grant a continuance on cases that involve such serious charges, allowing for the defendant or state prosecutors to procure an absent witness or other evidence believed to be necessary for the defense or the prosecution of the case.

Gilliam will ultimately be heard by Circuit Court Judge Barry Tidwell. The suspect is being represented by Public Defender Brennan Foy and the state is represented by Assistant Rutherford County District Attorney Trevor Lynch. At this time, Gilliam remains behind bars at the local jail, where he has been since February of 2021.

DISCLAIMER: All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The arrest records or information about an arrest that are published or reported on NewsRadio WGNS and are not an indication of guilt or evidence that an actual crime has been committed.
