Harry Wayne Roberts Charged with Rape

Three weeks ago, Harry Wayne Roberts and his wife were listed as wanted individuals, namely as the masterminds of a local theft ring that targeted heavy equipment across northwest Alabama. Today Roberts, 48, has been charged with First Degree Rape in Colbert County.

Roberts and his wife Stacy Elaine Murray, 34, list their primary residence as in Russellville. Murray had reportedly turned herself in to Franklin County authorities, but Roberts had not. If Franklin County still wants Roberts, he's being held in the Colbert County Jail. Considering the newest charges against him, he may wish to stay there rather than return to his wife 


We've received several comments, both public and private, on yesterday's blog concerning Autumn Marie Wood. Obviously accusations need to be verified before they are published, but one rumor seems to be in full force. Did someone hand Autumn the knife she used to stab Brooklyn Hollins?

The current account of Autumn searching a kitchen drawer for a weapon hardly makes sense. Surely Brooklyn didn't lie on the kitchen floor patiently waiting for the fight to resume. We're sure these facts will be brought out at the trial in September.


Several readers have also asked if the murder trial of Jason Green started today. A Franklin County judge had scheduled the trial, postponed four times, for June 6th; however, we have no new info on the proceedings. Such trials usually begin on Monday, with the first day being reserved for jury selection. There's a good chance the proceedings have again been postponed. We welcome any input.
