TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (AP) - Police in northwest Alabama say three men are charged with capital murder in the slaying of a Tuscumbia man last week.

Tuscumbia police say 31-year-old Thomas Charles Hubbard; 22-year-old Peter Gerold Capote and 28-year-old Benjamin Owen Young are accused of killing 19-year-old Kijana Freeman.

Freeman was shot to death while sitting in a car at an apartment complex. A 17-year-old also was injured.

Police say Capote and Hubbard are being held at the Colbert County jail without bond. Young was arrested after a chase and is jailed in Lawrence County, Tennessee.

Court records don’t show whether the defendants have defense lawyers who could speak on their behalf.

Freeman’s funeral is set for Tuesday.
