BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Birmingham police say a 36-year-old man is charged with capital murder in the stabbing death of a 71-year-old woman.

Police said in a statement Wednesday that Jeffery Justice of Birmingham has been arrested in the death of Linda Albritton and is being held without bond in the Jefferson County jail.

Police say a witness came forward and identified Justice as a suspect. The witness told investigators that Justice was seen driving the victim’s car and police say they found the woman’s car keys on Justice when he was arrested. Police say Albritton and Justice had prior contact with each other but additional details weren’t immediately available.

It’s unclear if Justice has an attorney.
