Bond has been set for a man accused of the Nov. 19 murder of an Elba woman.

Freddie Caldwell Jr., 44, charged with the murder of 49-year-old Evelyn Mincy Carpenter, received an $800,000 bond in District Judge Paul Sherling's courtroom.

Caldwell, who admitted to having four prior felonies, is not allowed to have contact with the victim's family if he makes bond, according to officials.

Bond has been set for a man accused of the Nov. 19 murder of an Elba woman.

Freddie Caldwell Jr., 44, charged with the murder of 49-year-old Evelyn Mincy Carpenter, received an $800,000 bond in District Judge Paul Sherling's courtroom.

Caldwell, who admitted to having four prior felonies, is not allowed to have contact with the victim's family if he makes bond, according to officials.

Carpenter died at Elba General Hospital Nov. 19, according to a press release from the Elba Police Department. She was taken to the emergency room by personal vehicle to receive treatment for wounds.

Caldwell was taken into custody and charged with her murder Nov. 20 after being released from a Dothan hospital where he was being treated.

Deadly highways

A Tuesday morning wreck on Highway 84 in New Brockton left the driver of a motorcycle in critical condition, according to officials.

Shortly before 7 a.m. a vehicle turning onto the highway struck a motorcycle traveling towards Enterprise on Highway 84. The collision caused the driver of the motorcycle to be ejected.

The driver was transported to a Dothan hospital where he is being treated for injuries. Fog is believed to have played a possible role in the accident.

No additional details were available at press time.

A Samson man was killed and his passenger injured last week in a single-vehicle accident on County Road 661.

Madison Moncrieff, 48, died Nov. 17 from injuries he suffered after his Chevrolet truck left the road and struck a tree, according to the Alabama Department of Public Safety.

Brenda Maggard, 50, was taken by helicopter to Dothan to receive treatment for her injuries.

"Neither Moncreiff nor Maggard was wearing seatbelts in the crash that occurred 15 miles southwest of Enterprise," said Trooper Kevin Cook.

An Elba woman died from injuries she suffered in a single-vehicle crash on Highway 125.

Betty Jean Wilson McLeod, 39, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which occurred at about 6:10 p.m. Monday evening.

According to a statement from ADPS, McLeod was traveling south around a curve in a Mitsubishi Montero when her vehicle left the roadway.

McLeod was partially ejected from the vehicle during the crash.

The accident remains under investigation, but troopers believe high speed and alcohol may have played a role in the crash.

Police make rape arrests

Enterprise police last week arrested two men on unrelated rape charges.

Daleville resident Joshua Roland Fuller Gilley, 25, was taken into custody at his residence in Daleville Nov. 16 and charged with first-degree rape, according to arrest reports.

Gilley is accused of raping an adult female following a party, police said.

Jordain Lymac Jackson, 20, was taken into custody Nov. 20 and charged with rape in the second degree.

Jackson allegedly was engaged in a sexual relationship with a female under the age of 16.
