Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up August 16th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, August 16, 2017


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


- The Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit recently released surveillance photos of a shooting incident in a local parking deck late last month. Two female suspects had chosen to fight at the top of the deck, and the incident began building a crowd. The fight escalated beyond control as people in the crowd started fighting each other with two people shooting into cars. When authorities searched the scene, they discovered more than 100 bullet shell casings and several bullet holes in various part of the deck. Police are still looking to identify the suspects. 


- Two teens (Arron Raynard Jones, 17, of Birmingham, and Jakobe Isaiah Carter, 18, of Phenix City) are being held on burglary and capital murder charges without bond for allegedly killing a construction worker outside a Madison Publix Store. Police said the two teens had been accused of running away from the Three Springs juvenile facility when they allegedly killed the construction worker. After killing the man with blunt trauma to the head, police believed the teens took the victim's cellphone and wallet, labelling it a crime of opportunity. Authorities later found the suspects hiding in the woods.


- A dispute over Taco Bell tacos caused an Athens man to turn violent. Tyler Tarrell Dukes, 19, has been accused of assaulting his brother with a baseball bat after he was asked to share his food. Limestone County authorities were called to the scene and found the victim bleeding from his head. Dukes has been charged with second-degree assault and could face up to ten years in prison if convicted.
