District Attorney Ray Whitley confirmed that a probation officer was preparing a warrant for accused murderer Michael Cummins' arrest the day before several people were found brutally killed in Sumner County, the Tennessean reports. A violation of probation affidavit was filed Monday and outlined how Cummins violated his parole when he was taken into custody as a suspect in the slayings of seven people and when he failed to comply with conditions requiring him to receive a mental health evaluation. Cummins was previously arrested on Sept. 13, 2017, after he set fire to a neighbor's home and assaulted her as she attempted to put out the flames, according to the warrant in that case.
