A murder suspect has been charged by special agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation after allegedly threatening a TBI agent.

Those with the TBI began investigating 58-year-old Wallace Brasel on December 6. Brasel has been an inmate in the Cheatham County Jail.

He had previously been arrested in April after he was charged in connection to the 1998 murder of Eric Baxter.

According to a recent investigation, Brasel had phone conversations with a family member. That’s when he allegedly made threats of bodily harm against the TBI agent who had investigated Baxter’s murder.

On Monday, Brasel was served with a warrant charging him with one count of retaliation for past action.
