Cleburne authorities still trying to identify murder victim 

Authorities in Cleburne County are continuing their efforts to identify the body of a Hispanic man found in a well near Heflin late last week.  According to Cleburne County Sheriff Joe Jacks,  they have arrested two people in connection with the death.  25-year-old Daffney Chambers of an Ohatchee address and 33 –year-oldl Phillip Anthony Smith of Fruithurst have both been charged with capitol murder and are being held in the Cleburne County Jail.  Sheriff Jacks said that robbery was the motive for the murder and that their investigation revealed that the killing took place at what the Sheriff called an old home place where the well was located off of County Road 77 south of Heflin..  Officials believe that the victim may have been a resident of Calhoun County and that he was last seen alive on the night of Janurary 28th at AJ’s bar in Anniston.



Boyfriend charged in child’s death 

A 30 year old Gadsden man has been charged with capital murder in the weekend death of his girlfriend’s son.  Ronnie Lynn Kirksey was charged Tuesday in the death of 23 month old Cornell Norwood.  According to officials Kirksey is from Wilsonville but had been living with the child’s mother and her three children for about three months in the Colley Homes Public Housing Complex on north sixth place.  Gadsden fire department medics called police late Saturday after they responded to the home and found the child not breathing.  Medics were suspicious of the injuries and contacted police.  According to District Attorney Jimmie Harp, Preliminary autopsy reports indicate that the child died from massive trauma to the head and body.  Harp says he will meet with the investigative team to review the case and decide whether to seek the death penalty against Kirksey.  The child’s mother and her other two children had walked to the store leaving Kirksey alone with the child when the injuries occurred.


Officials break ground for new Depot Plant 

Governor Bob Riley along with Congressman Mike Rogers of Saks were on hand Tuesday to break ground for a new 75 million dollar engine plant at the Anniston Army Depot.  The Plant will begin operations in about two years.  Rogers said that the Powertrain Flexible Maintenance Center was a key selling point that helped the 66 year old Depot avoid job cuts during last years round of base cuts and consolidations.  Congress committed 24 million dollars for the facility in the 2005 budget.  The new plant will rebuild diesel engines for combat vehicles and will be equipped to remanufacture at least 1,875 diesel engines a year.  The Anniston Depot already does the same engine work in a converted warehouse, but officials said the new facility will increase efficiency and quality.  Workers will be able to disassemble, clean, repair and reassemble the engines for less than the cost of buying new engines.  The engines, ranging from 400 to 1,000 horsepower, are used in M-88, M-113 and M9 vehicles, all tanks like armored vehicles that run on tracks.  About 6,850 employees at the depot provide a wide range of work involving military vehicles, weapons and ammunition.  Most are civilian employees of the army.  About a thousand workers work for private companies that have contracts with the army.
