A Houston County judge sent the capital murder case against a Dothan pastor to a grand jury but will allow Kenneth Glasgow to get out of jail on bond.

Glasgow is accused in the shooting death of 23-year old Breunia Jennings who was killed March 25th. Police and prosecutors allege Jamie Townes fired the deadly shots but Glasgow is also responsible.

District Judge Benjamin Lewis set Glasgow’s bond at $75,000. He is expected to post bail this afternoon.

Townes, police say, rode with Glasgow and two others during a search for Townes’ car that Jennings apparently stole on Blackshear Street.

During a preliminary hearing held Friday Dothan Police Investigator Justin Dodson testified the car was spotted about three miles away. Townes, he said, got out of Glasgow’s car and shot the driver, Jennings. Townes apparently thought she was a man because her head was shaved, and she was dressed in men’s clothing.

Dodson also testified the vehicle suffered damage due to Jennings’ erratic driving before it struck the car driven by Glasgow one or more times.

Glasgow was charged under Alabama complicity law that states a person must make a reasonable effort to prevent a crime.

A grand jury is expected to consider the case in the next few weeks and can send the case to trial, dismiss the charge, or amend the charge.

Glasgow is founder of The Ordinary People's Society, a community activist group that helps others.

Glasgow is best known for his efforts to register convicted felons to vote.
