Suspect Arrested For Assault Free On Bond

A suspect in the killing of a fellow carnival worker at the national peanut festival is free on bond.

28-year-old Shane Westover was arrested yesterday, by U.S Marshals in Montgomery.

He was returned to Dothan where he posted $30,000 bond.

Westover is charged with manslaughter.

He’s accused in the beating death of 60-year-old Michael Cowherd of Indianapolis.

Police say the two men got in a fight last Thursday and Cowherd sustained a critical head injury.

He died Saturday at a Dothan hospital.

Westover is scheduled to be in court on December 11th.
