BAY MINETTE, Ala. – A 79-year-old Montgomery woman is accused of assisting her son in the slaying of her husband whose body parts were found nearly two years ago.
News outlets report a Baldwin County grand jury indicted Carolyn Hood on Tuesday on a charge of aiding and abetting a capital murder in 87-year-old Kenneth Bryan Hood's death.
Officials believe the victim was killed in November 2014 in the Foley home he shared with his wife and her son, 57-year-old William Minton. His body parts later showed up around Magnolia Springs.
Minton faces capital murder and abuse of corpse charges in the death. His trial is scheduled for December.
Carolyn Hood's attorney, Jeremiah Giles, tells WKRG-TV that his client "can't get out of her wheelchair."
