HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Testimony in a Huntsville man's trial for the shooting deaths of two men at a T.G.I Friday's restaurant showed he unknowingly sought help from a distant cousin of one of the victims.
Jamal Woods is accused of capital murder for the Dec. 17, 2006
shooting that killed Thurston Turner and Tanqueray Beavers, both of
Athens. He's charged with attempted murder for the wounding of
Autora Rogers of Athens and William Reliford of Hazel Green.
Norman Rogers testified Friday that he picked Woods up at a La Quinta Inn after his longtime friend called him for help after the shooting. He said another friend, Kemeyetta Summers, was asked to pick up Woods' car.
Norman Rogers said he didn't know then that he and Autora Rogers were related.
Summers testified that Woods promised her a bag of cocaine for picking up his car.
