Calhoun County Marine dies in Iraq 

21-year-old Anniston Marine and Wellborn High School graduate serving in Iraq, died in Iraq Wednesday of unknown causes.  Cody Watson, who joined the Marine Corps last year, fell ill and collapsed Wednesday. A medical team was unable to revive him.

Watson is survived by his father, Brian Watson, who recently retired from the Anniston Police Department, and his sister, Lacey Watson.   


Woman pleads guilty to murder of retired Anniston firefighter 

An Etowah County woman has plead guilty in the 11 year old murder of retired Anniston firefighter Herbert Willie Woods. According to Calhoun Circuit assistant district attorney Brian McVeigh, 44 year old Kathy Williams Boone,  of Southside, entered her plea Tuesday and was sentenced to 50 years in prison for the death of Woods, who was her former employer. The Body of the retired firefighter was discovered by his son on Oct. 14, 1995 at the Anniston New and Used Furniture shop, where Woods worked. Boone’s plea, which was entered in Circuit Court Judge Joel Laird’s court room, resulted from an investigation spearheaded by the Cold Case Unit of the Calhoun County District Attorney’s Office. Boone, who tried to use the victims bank card to take money from Woods’ bank account before and after he was killed, confessed to the killing 10 years and 10 days after it occurred. Boone will be transferred to Tutwiler Prison in Wetumpka to serve her sentence.

Preuitt says he has votes to change senate 

State Sen. Jim Preuitt, of Talladega, a Democrat now aligned with Republicans, announced Thursday he had gathered enough votes to oust Democratic Senate President Pro Tem Lowell Barron, which would give Republicans their greatest influence in the Senate since Reconstruction.  One Republican, however, said the announcement was premature.  Barron, meanwhile, said no one should jump to any conclusions before the Senate's organizational session starts Jan. 9.
Preuitt announced Thursday that he had the votes "to successfully organize the Senate." He said he's committed to having a mix of Democrats and Republicans as chairmen of Senate committees, and he believes Republican Gov. Bob Riley should get his bills considered on the Senate floor rather than stopping in committee.  The 71 year old Preuitt,  was once Barron's ally, but they split last year and Barron helped Preuitt's opponent in the Democratic primary.  Now, Preuitt is a leader of six dissident Democrats who split off from the Senate's other 17 Democrats.  One GOP negotiator, Sen. Bradley Byrne of Montrose, said the announcement was premature, saying that There hasn't been a commitment made to anybody about anything.
Republican Sen. Larry Dixon of Montgomery said Democrats will still be in the majority, but if Preuitt is president pro tem, Republicans will have more chairmanships and more seats on major Senate committees than at any time in his 28-year tenure.  Preuitt said the Senate shouldn't be a rubber stamp for any governor, "but a governor ought to have his plan heard."  Complicating the organization of the Senate are two lawsuits challenging the election of Barron and three of his allies, as well as Sen. Larry Means, D-Gadsden, who's on Preuitt's side. The litigation is still in the early stages. 



Man pleads guilty to St. Clair murder 

A man already serving time for the 1999 murder of a Pell City Man,  pleaded guilty Thursday to a St. Clair County homicide that had remained unsolved for 14 years. 31 year old James Daniel Oglesby,  pleaded guilty in open court to the first-degree murder of 50 year old  Lowell Eugene Keith, of Margaret, who died in 1992 from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest. Circuit Court Judge Jim Hill sentenced Oglesby to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Oglesby was 16 at the time he shot and killed Keith in a botched home burglary April 3, 1992.
