Cottondale Man Faces Indictment

A Jackson County grand jury has returned a first degree murder indictment against a Cottondale man.

43-year-old Leroy Taylor was arrested in January for the shooting death of his wife.

46-year-old Vanessa Taylor was shot in the head with a semi-automatic handgun.

The shooting took place inside the couple's North Street home in Cottondale.

Taylor claims the shooting was an accident, but prosecutors say the crime was pre-meditated.

A pre-trial hearing in the case is set for May 22.
