    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.

    Accused Coden roadside killers deserve to hang, victim's brother says

    By Michael Dumas

    MOBILE, Alabama – The father killed while defending his stepdaughter during a roadside robbery was a good man who would give anything to anyone who asked. And it’s unthinkable he would die because someone wanted to take something from him, his brother said Monday.

    Robert Perry, 66, was shot to death near Bellingrath Road on March 11 after the car he and 42-year-old Stephanie Finney were riding in was forced off the road.

    According to prosecutors, it was Kymberli Lindsay, 25, and Saraya Atkins, 20, who rammed their car after following them 15 miles from a Walmart in Tillman’s Corner. Moments later, Perry was dead.

    The defendants were before Circuit Court Judge Michael Youngpeter for a preliminary hearing on Monday, and are charged with robbery and capital murder.

    “He was a good fella,” the victim’s younger brother, Terry Perry, said afterward. “He’d do anything for you, help you in any way.”

    According to a detective’s testimony on Monday, Lindsay and Atkins laid in wait outside a check-cashing counter in the store looking to “hit a lick,” or rob someone, hopefully with the proceeds from a tax-refund check.

    Detective Clifton Holifield told Judge Michael Youngpeter that there’s video evidence recovered from the store showing Lindsay sitting outside the check-cashing area.

    He said the two were looking for a woman without children to minimize the chance of resistance. The two followed Finney and Perry from the store, all the way onto Bayou Jonas Drive in Coden, where he lived, before they blocked his car in with their own, the detective said.

    Atkins held a .327-caliber pistol on the victims during the robbery, during which $1,900 was taken from Finney, according to testimony. When Perry went for the gun – which Holifield said belonged to Lindsay’s boyfriend – he was shot in the arm. The bullet went through his arm and severed the jugular vein in his chest.

    The defendants then fled, but when their car became mired in mud, they ran off on foot. They were in nearby woods when deputies apprehended them, Holifield said.

    Terry Perry said the circumstances of his brother’s death was “a tragedy for both families,” but that he’s clear on what he feels should happen if Atkins and Lindsay are convicted.

    “I think they should be hung, just like they did in the old days,” he said.

    The defendants are currently being held without bond in Mobile County Metro Jail. On Monday Judge Youngpeter found sufficient evidence to send their cases to a grand jury. The two could face the death penalty if convicted.

    Robert Perry has started a support fund for those he left behind. Details can be found here.
