A Jacksonville man has been indicted by a Cherokee County Grand Jury on a charge of capital murder that occurred Jan. 7 at a Jacksonville apartment building.

London Castleberry, 33, remains in the Cherokee County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond. The indictment was handed up March 25, according to court documents.

According to a Jacksonville Police Department release, officers responded to the scene of Travis Towers Apartments, 557 S. Ragsdale St., and discovered Robert Barclay, 74, of Jacksonville, “was in fact deceased of what appeared to be multiple stab wounds from a knife to his upper torso and head area.”

The release described how, early that morning on Jan. 7, a 33-year-old Jacksonville man entered the lobby of the Jacksonville Police Department, stating that he had killed a person, and “advised officers that he had used a knife to kill” Barclay at his residence.

After discovering the victim, officers obtained an arrest warrant for Castleberry, who also resided at Travis Towers.

Castleberry remains in the Cherokee County Jail on a $1 million bond in connection to a Jan. 7 murder at a local apartment complex.
