James Brewer could now face the death penalty over the unsolved killing in Tennessee 32 years ago, reports say. Convinced he was dying after a stroke, Mr Brewer reportedly admitted to police he shot dead 20-year-old Jimmy Carroll. The 58-year-old, who had fled Tennessee after the killing, was arrested after his condition improved, reports say.
