Jury finds Tony Woods guilty of felony murder

LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

After deliberating for around 7 hours, a jury convicted Tony Woods of felony murder on Friday night.

Tony was on trial for the capital murder of his ex-wife, Tammie Woods.

Tony gunned down his ex-wife Tammie after the two had an argument on his property in Lauderdale County in July of 2010.

Authorities said Tammie took off in her car from his house after a domestic argument and that Tony then fired at least four shots at her car. Tammie crashed on County Road 2.

Woods' attorneys said he started shooting at his ex-wife because she was trying to run him over in his yard.

"We like the verdict. We are pleased with the verdict, and they finally held him accountable for killing his wife. We expect to ask for a life sentence," said Lauderdale County DA, Chris Connolly.

Woods will be sentenced on September 26.
