Grand Jury Indicts Man Accused of Killing Tucker Beathard’s Brother

According to, Michael Mosley has been indicted by a grand jury and charged with two counts of first degree murder/premeditated, one count of attempted first degree murder/premeditated and one count of assault.

Mosley is accused of the stabbing deaths of Clayton Beathard, 22, and Paul Trapeni III, 21, on Dec. 21, 2019, outside Nashville’s Dogwood Bar. Another victim, AJ Bethurum, suffered injuries to his eye and arm.

Clayton is the son of country songwriter Casey Beathard and the brother of singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard (pictured in main photo) and NFL quarterback C.J. Beathard.

“The fatal stabbings appear to have resulted from an argument over a woman that began inside Dogwood Bar and then turned physical when the parties went outside,” according to a press release from Nashville Police in December 2019. “Multiple persons were involved in the outdoor fight during which the two men were both fatally stabbed in their sides.”

Mosley was captured on Dec. 25 in Cheatham County, Tenn., after a joint task force located him in a vacant house.
