DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -A woman sought in the deadly shooting of a Houston County man has been nabbed by deputies.

Mykeila Rowser, 21, is the second person charged in the November 29 shooting of 58-year old Hardy Lynn Gray. She was booked into the Houston County Jail early Thursday.

Also charged is Cierra Goodson, 21, captured by deputies one day after Gray died.
