According to Sheriff Jim Matthews, the department opened up the course and waived an $80 fee to sign up in response to the brutal murder of Beverly Hope Melton.

That man, 23-year-old Nickolas Miller, could be hit with the death penalty, according to Matthews.

Matthews says 30 spots were offered on the department's Facebook page and were filled in just minutes.
