The man accused of gunning down a 14-year old Antioch school student in Smyrna will appear in a Rutherford County courtroom on Friday for his plea date. Rachan “Micky” Chatree was attending a graduation party when he was struck by a stray bullet from a passing car at a Lakewood Circle home in Smyrna two years ago. After being shot Chatree was taken to StoneCrest Medical Center and later transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center where he died a short time later.
Chris “Gong” Nachampasak of Murfreesboro was arrested in August of 2010 and charged with Chatree’s death. Nachampasak was picked up in Prior Lake, Minnesota. The man was allegedly on the run from the law.
