Incident at Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facility halts maintenance work 

 Planned maintenance work at the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facility has been curtailed following a structural problem at the facility late Monday.   According to Spokesman Mike Abrams, the incident did not pose any risk to the public.  The deactivation furnace is one of three furnaces used during disposal operations of the Anniston chemical munitions stockpile.  The deactivation furnace was designed to destroy M55 rockets after they have been cut into eight pieces and the explosive components of other munitions.  Monday’s problem was isolated to the deactivation furnace afterburner.  The other two furnaces and their associated afterburners were not involved.  Site officials had been planning to resume chemical weapons disposal operations in early July; however a thorough assessment of the problems with the afterburner will determine what affect Monday’s problem may have on future operations.

Gadsden police continue search for murder suspects 

Gadsden Police Detectives continued questioning people Monday in the weekend shooting of two people on a Gadsden city street.  30 year old Baxter Martin and 18 year old Jame’ Esha Shropshire were shot several times as the pulled into an alley off south 11th street in Gadsden near 8 Saturday night.  Detectives say that it is unclear if Martin, who was behind the wheel of the car, was attempting to get away or if his foot ended up on the accelerator as the car plowed thru a couple of yards, a fence, a flower bed and struck a van before ending up on the street in the one thousand block of walnut street.  Investigators said that Shropshire was believed to be pregnant, however an autopsy Monday revealed an entopic pregnancy which means the fetus is outside the uterus and could not continue to birth.  Detectives say they are still searching for a motive in the shooting as well as those responsible.  The deaths of two or more people during the commission of a crime can constitute capital murder, carrying a penalty of life in prison without parole or a death sentence.


Fire damages commissioners home 

The home of Calhoun County Commissioner J.D. Hess sustained minor smoke damage Monday afternoon.  Officials said that workers had just finished mowing the grass at the Hess residence and placed the lawn mower in the crawlspace beneath the home.  Officials said the hot muffler from the mower ignited insulation under the house.  A neighbor noticed the smoke and fought the fire with a garden hose.  Units from the Anniston fire department then arrived and extinguished the fire. 



Former school bookkeeper changes plea  

A former Ashville High School bookkeeper, accused of embezzling more than $60,000 in school funds, pleaded guilty Monday to fraud and theft of property.
     36 year old Amy Murphree of Steele changed her plea from innocent to guilty in open court Monday before St. Clair County Circuit Court Judge Charles Robinson.   Murphree pleaded guilty to first-degree theft of property and three counts of second-degree forgery.   Robinson told Murphree she could face a sentence of up to 50 years in prison on the charges brought against her by the state.  Robinson set Murphree’s sentencing hearing for Aug. 21. Authorities say Murphree stole more than $60,000 in school funds, but District Attorney Richard Minor said there is a disagreement between the state and Murphree on the amount of restitution owed.  Minor told the judge Murphree admitted to investigators with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation she stole school funds and endorsed and cash checks made out to vendors. Murphree was released shortly after being arrested in September 2005 on a $20,000 bond. However, Robinson ordered her bond revoked last month after Murphree was arrested in Etowah County for possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Murphree was initially arrested in September 2005, after an ABI investigation into school finances, which covered a 20-month period, Oct. 1, 2003 through May 31, 2004.  The criminal investigation was sparked after the District Attorney’s Office and ABI were informed of findings of an audit conducted by the State Examiners of Public Accounts.   First-degree theft of property is a Class B felony and carries a minimum sentence of two years and a maximum sentence of 20 years. Second-degree forgery is a Class C felony and carries a minimum sentence of one year, one day and a maximum sentence of 10 years for each count. Murphree is charged with three counts of second-degree forgery.
