DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) — A 20-year-old Georgia man has been denied youthful offender in the Capital Murder case of a Dothan man.

According to Houston County District Attorney Russ Goodman, Solomon Cooper, of Climax, Georgia, was denied youthful offender status on Thursday, June 1.

Cooper is accused of killing 20-year-old Sincere Tyson, who was shot at least once while sleeping in his Abbey-Oaks apartment after a birthday party in October 2021. On December 8, 2021, Dothan investigators listed Cooper as a person of interest and after a continued investigation, he was charged with one count of capital murder-burglary in the first degree.

Russ was also denied youthful offender status in March 2023.

The third suspect in the case has not been named.
