Capital Murder Charges Sought for Coden Shooting Suspects
By Allen Carter
Two women accused of shooting a man to death in Coden Tuesday could face the death penalty for the crime.
District Attorney Ashley Rich confirmed her office has upgraded charges to capital murder against Kymberli Lindsay and Saraya Atkins.
Mobile County Sheriff’s investigators say the two followed 66-year-old Robert Perry and his daughter home to try to rob them. After a confrontation on Bayou Jonas Dr. in Coden detectives say Perry was gunned down in his car.
The suspects apparently scouted out their victims after observing them cash a check at Wal-Mart. Investigators say the victim and suspect were not known to each other, saying the shooting was a random act.
Lindsay and Atkins are set to appear before a judge Thursday morning for a bond hearing.
