Guilty plea expected in Hoover murder trial

HOOVER, AL (WBRC) - Jefferson county prosecutors expect a guilty plea from the teenager accused in the death of a Hoover woman.

Authorities charged Darryle Sheilds with the October 2008 death of Doris Bennett. She was killed while walking her dog at her apartment complex in Hoover. Robbery appeared to be the motive.

A second teen is also charged in Bennett's murder, which was the only homicide in Hoover last year.
