Two Men Indicted in Shooting Death of a Dothan Man

Two suspects in the shooting death of a Dothan man have been indicted by a Houston County grand jury.

Brandon Bell and Pravin Simpson are both charged with capital murder.

They're accused of killing Richard Smith earlier this summer.

Smith's body was found in a Dothan railroad yard on June 20th. He had been shot to death.

Bell was arrested after a 12-day investigation.

Smith was picked up a short time later.

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

Bell and Simpson are being held without bond in the Houston County Jail.

A trial date has not been set.

Meanwhile, police are now looking for a third suspect in Smith's killing.

A warrant was signed today charging 27-year-old Andre Oshawn Farrier with capital murder in the case.

A reward is being offered to help find him.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, you should call Crimestoppers at 793-7000.
