Preliminary Hearing in Dothan Capital Murder Case

A suspect in the shooting death of a Dothan man was back in court for a preliminary hearing.

25-year-old Brandon Bell is charged with capital murder.

Bell is one of two suspects accused of killing Richard Smith 6-weeks ago.

The victim's body was found in a Dothan rail yard on June 20th.

Bell was arrested following a 12-day investigation.

Prosecutors say Smith was killed because of a dispute over drugs.

District Judge Brad Mendheim has bound the case over to a Houston County grand jury.

Bell is being held without bond in the Houston County Jail.
