TUSCALOOSA - AL -

   The man Tuscaloosa Homicide Investigators charged with murder of his friend has been indicted in another death -- his uncle's.

    A grand jury handed down the bill today, charging Alexius Foster with the Capital Murder of his uncle, George Foster.

    Foster is already in jail charge with murder of a once close friend named Antonio Williams.  Authorities arrested and charged Foster last month before Williams' remains was found by hunters last weekend off Joe Mallisham Parkway.

    Williams had been reported missing July 17th when police say witnesses saw Foster shoot Williams at a home in Holt.   Police believe the motive behind the shooting was that Foster thought Williams had "snitched" or  told investigators where to find him.  At that time, Foster was only wanted as a person of interest in the death of his uncle.

    Police say new evidence has turned up during the Williams murder case which lead them to believe Foster was connected to George Fosters death.

     George Foster was found dead at his home off Martin Luther King drive on June 13th.   Police say Williams was shot July 17th.

     In between that time but before his arrest, Police also believe Foster robbed a third  man, beat him and left him for dead near apartments off Skyland Boulevard.  He has been charged in that case as well and now being held in the Tuscaloosa County jail without bond.

    Look! Up in the sky! It's supermoon! Because our celestial neighbor is relatively close to Earth, these full moons will appear to be unusually large. That distance varies because the moon follows an elliptical orbit. When it's close and full, it appears bigger and brighter than normal, although the difference can be hard to detect. The full moon Saturday may seem huge, but it's just an illusion caused by its position in the sky. Two other supermoons will come later this summer on Aug. 10 and ...More >>
