Suspect charged in Anniston murder
Anniston Police have a man in custody charged
with Saturday nights shooting of an Anniston man. 27 year old James
Anderson Morgan, turned himself in to police Tuesday evening in
connection with the Oct. 27 fatal shooting of Marrio Dobbins.
Investigators said Morgan had been a suspect from the beginning and
that they had secured a warrant for his arrest based on witness
statements and other leads. Dobbins, was shot as he was driving a
gold 1995 Nissan Sentra on the street where he lived on Oct. 27
around 8 p.m. when another vehicle passed him and fired shots into
the vehicle. Investigators said additional warrants may be as the
number of people in the car from which the shots were fired is still
under investigation. The brother of Morgan, 24 year old Marcus
Pinson, of Anniston, reported to police that Dobbins had shot him in
a dispute just a few hours before he was murdered. Pinson was
treated and released at Stringfellow Memorial Hospital for
non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. Another complaint a day earlier
alleged Dobbins had shot at another man, 35 year old Thomas Moore,
of Jacksonville, Moore was uninjured.
Just weeks after a federal court ordered
Alabama to delay one execution until after the U.S. Supreme Court
hears a challenge to lethal injection, the state on Wednesday
scheduled two more. Thomas D. Arthur, whose execution was delayed
while the state changed its lethal injection procedure, has been
rescheduled for execution Dec. 6, according to a state Supreme Court
order. James Harvey Callahan, convicted for the 1982 suffocation
death of a 26-year-old woman from Jacksonville, is scheduled to die
Jan. 31. The state's action is counter to a nationwide trend. The
U.S. Supreme Court, state courts and elected officials have halted
executions in a dozen states pending the outcome of the Kentucky
On Tuesday, the high court halted an execution
in Mississippi, just minutes before the inmate was to die, and a
federal judge in Arkansas called off an execution scheduled for Nov.
8. The stays make this year's nationwide total of executions to date
- 42 - the lowest since 1994. For the first time in nearly three
years, a month has passed with no executions in the United States.
Even in Texas, the nation's leader in executions.
