Police have arrested a fourth man in connection with September’s drug-related beating death of Brian Horton.

Metro and Franklin officers arrested Robert Carter Jr., 30, late Tuesday at a home on Hardison Drive in Franklin.

Carter, like the others arrested so far in the case, was charged with first-degree murder. A Davidson County grand jury indicted five men in Horton’s murder.

Ronald Sanderson, 39, is the only suspect who remains at large. He is last known to have lived on South 10th Street in East Nashville.
