ALEXIUS FOSTER FOUND GUILTY

Alexius Foster was charged with capital murder for the stabbing death of his uncle, George Foster in 2013.

Foster was also accused of shooting his friend Antonio Williams, who he believed, according to authorities, turned him over to the police for killing George Foster.
This is Foster’s second trial this year. Police arrested a second man, Shadrell Matthews in connection with both cases during Foster’s first trial in August, leading the judge to declare a mistrial.
Foster has now been found guilty on two counts of capital murder,one during burglary and one during robbery, which resulted in the death of George Foster. He’s also been found guilty on one count of murder in the death of Antonio Williams and one count of theft of property for stealing a vehicle driven by Williams prior to his death.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Tuscaloosa County District Attorney Lyn Head says this has been a difficult case due to the family relationships, but she’s glad the family can now have some closure.

Judge John England has put a gag order on this case, meaning no parties involved can release any new information on the case to the public. Sentencing for Alexius Foster begins Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 9:30 AM.
Shadrell Matthews is being tried separately.
