Mosely is also facing one count of Attempted First Degree Murder and one count of Assault for the stabbing of Alvin Bethurum, who is also from Williamson County, and received injuries to his eye and arm. 

According to police, Mosley was arrested on Christmas Day of 2019 when he was found hiding in a vacant home in Ashland City by Metro Nashville Police Department SWAT officers, Midtown Hills Precinct detectives, TBI agents, the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force and Cheatham County Sheriff’s deputies.  

The case has gained national attention as Beathard was a former quarterback at Battle Ground Academy and a student athlete at Long Island University at the time of his death. He was also the brother of C.J. Beathard, an NFL quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers.
