SHELBY, Ala. (AP) - A Columbiana teenager who was extradited from California could face the death sentence in the shooting death of his girlfriend.

Al.com (https://bit.ly/1KwP3dU ) reported Monday that 19-year-old Demarcus L. Means was indicted on a capital murder charge earlier this month and is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 5 before Shelby County Circuit Judge Dan Reeves.

Means was arrested in the death of 18-year-old Haleigh D. Greene of Shelby. Green’s body was found near her car in a wooded area near Columbiana on July 11. He was arrested 10 days later in Los Angeles.

Means had initially been charged with murder, but that charge was dismissed by the Shelby County district attorney’s office in August in favor of a capital murder charge. The charge carries the possibility of a death sentence if convicted.
