Update on Shooting Death

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

              

            Sheriff Jimmy Harris reports that the juvenile involved in the shooting at Mount Vernon Tuesday was in court today. District Judge Steve Whitmire heard from Deputy District Attorney Bob Johnston about the events that took place which resulted in the death of Kelena Annette Hicks, 38 of Mount Vernon. Robert Ray was appointed to represent the juvenile. He is officially charged with murder in the death of Ms. Hicks. Matt Green will serve as his guardian during the upcoming proceedings. Judge Whitmire found there was probable cause to continue the detention of the suspect. The State filed a motion for an order to certify the juvenile as an adult for trial purposes. Juvenile Probation will now prepare a report for the court to use in helping make that determinations. The date for that hearing will be set sometime after August 1st. The suspect was returned to Anniston, where he will remain until his hearing
