Webster Chapel man killed in morning shooting 

A Calhoun County man is in custody this afternoon in connection with a shooting near 8am this morning in the Websters Chapel Community.  According to Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson their investigation is continuing.   When emergency personnel arrived, they observed a man armed with a rifle standing in the window of the home and called deputies.  The man fled the home and deputies searched the area for almost two hours before taking him into custody.  Amerson said that the victim was unarmed.  Assistant county coroner Marvin Southard identified the victim as 31 year old Kevin Samuel Finch,  Southard said that Finch died from multiple gunshot wounds.  Southard said that the body will be transported to Huntsville for an autopsy.  According to Sheriff Larry Amerson, Jimmy Bundrum is being held pending charges in the shooting.


Lincoln man charged in traffic death of Oxford woman 

34 year old Robert Lane Abbott of Lincoln faces vehicular homicide charges after a head-on collision on U.S. 431 in Saks late Friday night took the life of a pregnant young Oxford woman. 23 year old Laquinta Kenyatta Clark,  died after a 1980 Ford pickup driven by  Abbott slammed into her 1999 Ford Mustang. Witnesses said that Abbott was driving on the wrong side of the road in the southbound lane of U.S. 431 when he collided with the Clark vehicle near 11:30 p.m. Friday night. A passenger in the victim’s car, 17 year old Keisha Heard  was treated for injuries at Regional Medical Center and released. Another car, a 2005 Ford Mustang owned Calvin Joe Vaughn of Ohatchee, also was involved in the accident, according to troopers. No one was injured in that car. Clark was returning from Gadsden after watching the Oxford-Gadsden football game.



Fire destroys Heflin chicken plant 

A weekend fire destroyed the Tyson Foods poultry processing plant at Heflin, forcing a halt to production.   Tyson spokesman Gary Mickelson said Sunday the plant, which processes about one million birds per week, was not operating when the blaze broke out Saturday. No one was injured.   Dan Hopkins, assistant chief of the Hollis Crossroads Fire Department in Cleburne County, said firefighters saved the office complex, but the processing plant was destroyed. He said 16 different fire departments battled the blaze from 4:30 p.m. Saturday until about 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning.  Some nearby homes were evacuated because of hazardous fumes, but residents were allowed to return about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. Company officials said that only maintenance employees work at the plant on weekends. The plant, which opened in 1986, employs 267 workers.  Matthew Curlee, an employee at the plant, said he was at the plant until 4:15 p.m. Saturday afternoon. He said roofers were working on the plant.  Hopkins said the fire was first reported by the roofing contractor.   Mickelson said insulation may have caught fire during the roof repairs. He had no immediate estimate of the damages.   The plant uses anhydrous ammonia, a hazardous material, for its refrigeration system, according to an EPA risk management plan for the plant filed in 2004. The plan said the maximum inventory of the material was 16,409 pounds. Anhydrous ammonia is caustic and can cause severe chemical burns. Partly because of the hazardous materials, police blocked all traffic on Alabama Highway 9 near the plant.   Mickelson said poultry shipments to the Heflin plant will be diverted to the company's other plants in Albertville, Ashland, Blountsville and Gadsden.


Pell City man charged with theft of interstate signs 

A Pell City man is in jail on theft charges after state highway department officials accused him of stealing 17 signs along Interstate 20 east of Birmingham.  DOT said the thefts occurred over the past two months. 36 year old Kenneth Scott Ferguson,  who is also charged with receiving stolen property, was placed in the St. Clair County Jail under no bond.  DOT alleges Ferguson sold the signs, some as large 10 feet by 15 feet, for scrap at a Moody salvage yard. Authorities said scrap metal products are hot items among thieves statewide who want to take advantage of rising prices for copper, brass and aluminum.
