Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up September 7th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, September 07, 2018


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




- A 23-year-old man, Shaquille Tyus, has been charged in the Labor Day shooting of 21-year-old Taddavius Howard and his unnamed brother. Howard was allegedly shot in the head by Tyus near the Junebug Flea Market, airlifted to a Mobile hospital in critical condition and later died of his injuries on Wednesday. According to Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier, the victim's brother was shot at, but not injured. Tyus was originally charged with two counts of attempted murder, but Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson said he will be charged with capital murder after the death of Howard. Tyus is in the Dallas County Jail with bond set at $2.5 million.




- This past Tuesday, the St. Clair Board of Education and the St. Clair County Clerk's Office received terrorists threats by email that implied an explosive device would cause damage at the St. Clair County Courthouses, along with Pell City and Ashville Schools. According to Assistant Sheriff Billy Murray of the St. Clair County Sheriff's Office, the officers used "all available manpower and K9 units" to sweep and clear all of the locations named and threatened in the emails. A 37-year-old Springville man, Danny Ray Nichols, was identified as the suspect and arrested on two counts of making a terrorist threat. He is being held in the St. Clair County Jail without bond.
