Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up September 28th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, September 28, 2018

Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:



- This past Tuesday in Leeds, Irondale police and the Jefferson County Coroner's office recovered what they believed to be the remains of 77-year-old Ching Kao and his wife, 76-year-old Siumei Kao, the missing owners of an Irondale motel. The man suspected of committing the capital murder, Steven Richard Mulkey, had been captured by police and had originally told detectives they could find the bodies in Virginia. Authorities followed his "tip" on Monday evening, but officers eventually made the real discovery the following day. The incident began Friday when officers were called to the Siesta Motel on Crestwood Boulevard to check on the couple after one of their daughters became worried when she had not been able to speak with them. Upon arriving at the motel, police noticed a missing safe, saw blood in the area and found security footage in which the couple had been beaten in the motel office. Mulkey, the couple's handyman and resident at the nearby USA Econo Lodge, was identified as a person of interest on Saturday night. Investigators recovered the Kao's vehicle at the Econo Lodge. Information provided by the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force led to the arrest of Mulkey at the Hometown Inn in Staunton, Virginia on Monday. He faces charges for capital murder of two or more victims in the state of Alabama with a no-bond order. He is awaiting extradition from Virginia.


- During a traffic stop on Interstate 65 in Saraland Tuesday, a police K-9 found 62 packages of cocaine and U.S. currency concealed inside a 2016 Ford Expedition driven by James Bernard Braddy of Opa-locka, Fla. Saraland police said Braddy had been stopped for a traffic violation. In total, the seized packages weighed about 130 pounds with an approximate street value of $4.1 million. Braddy faces charges of trafficking cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia, and he is currently in Mobile County Jail.
