MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — A 17-year-old Mobile youth charged with killing a woman who complained about a speeding car was free on bond in six felony cases at the time of the slaying.
WKRG-TV (http://bit.ly/LkPheg ) reports that Trayon Washington had been released from jail despite being charged with burglaries, cases of receiving stolen property and drug possession.
The high school dropout is now being held without bond in the shooting death of 40-year-old Wendy Fisher. He’s charged with murder.
Authorities say Fisher was gunned down after yelling at a car to slow down in her neighborhood. They say someone got out of the vehicle after the warning and shot her in the chest.
Washington has a lawyer and is due in court next Thursday to enter a plea.
