WELLS, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man headed to trial in the 2009 death of a Wells man is back in jail in connection to a motorcycle theft.

Daniel Redd, 25, is charged with state-jail felony theft.

According to the arrest report, Redd walked a Honda Shadow out of a yard in Wells on July 30. Deputies with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office were able to connect Redd to the theft after a witness claimed seeing Redd with the motorcycle in Angelina County. The motorcycle was later recovered in a ditch in Angelina County.

Deputies obtained a warrant for Redd's arrest on Aug. 13. He was booked into the Cherokee County Jail on Aug. 28.

He is being held on a $5,000 bond.

Redd faces a jury trial later this year, with jury selection scheduled for Sept. 17, in connection to the beating death of Jerry Hadaway, 55.

According to a previous report, Hadaway died nearly two months after getting in a fight with Redd on Aug. 22, 2009, on Fourth Street and Manor Loop. Hadaway suffered head injuries in the fight and refused medical attention and to file criminal charges.

A week after the altercation, Hadaway's condition took a turn for the worse. An ambulance was called to his home, but still he refused medical treatment. A day later, Hadaway checked himself into a hospital.

It appeared Hadaway's condition was improving, so he left the hospital. Hadaway then went to a rehabilitation center. He died the morning of Oct. 13.

Redd is charged with second-degree manslaughter.
