Attempted Murder Suspect Now in Custody in Selma


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  A Selma woman wanted for attempted murder turns herself in to police.

A bond hearing was held for LaKeshia Prince this afternoon in Dallas County District Court. Judge Bob Armstrong says he'll set the bond -- then recuse himself from the case.

Prince is accused of shooting her ex-boyfriend in abdomen. Selma activist Faya Rose Toure has been acting as her attorney.

"The bond system in Selma is horribly inadequate and unequal and unfair," said Toure.

The district attorney's office is requesting a million dollar bond.

"Given the fact that LaKeshia Prince is a flight risk, we asked for a million dollar bond and also based on her prior record and that's why we wanted her bond that high," said District Attorney Michael Jackson.

Jackson say the victim in the shooting remains in critical condition in a Montgomery hospital.
