Police file murder charges against Alabama man

An Alabama man is now facing capitol murder charges.

Police announced the news on Dec. 27. According to authorities, a 28-year-old man was charged with murder for allegedly shooting another 28-year-old man to death in late October.

Police say the victim was found along U.S. Highway 78 near Leeds and Irondale. He had been shot multiple times in the chest and head. Police say they found the man's vehicle a few miles away. Authorities are continuing to investigate the case.

According to the news source, the man who authorities claim shot the 28 year old is already in jail for unrelated weapons possession charges.

Although police say they have found the man they believe is responsible, no one is guilty of a crime until final judgment is passed in a court of law. While murder charges are some of the most serious charges to face, everyone has the right to a fair trial, as well as a strong defense.

Because the man is facing such serious charges, he would likely benefit from working with an experienced criminal defense attorney. An attorney can thoroughly investigate the evidence in a case, and work to build an aggressive defense against the charges.

Anyone in Alabama who is facing criminal charges might also find it beneficial to work with an attorney who has experience defending people against serious crimes. An attorney will not only work towards a favorable outcome, but also make sure an individual's rights are protected. Those who are facing criminal charges do not have to do so alone.
