ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

Court documents filed in Limestone County Circuit Court reveal the State of Alabama does not intend to seek the death penalty against Joel Moyers.

Moyers is charged with the capital murder of Brandon Hydrick.

Moyers was initially charged with murder, but the charges were upgraded to capital murder with the grand jury indictment. His bond was revoked with that indictment.

Moyers spent several days in the hospital the indictment. He overdosed after learning of the capital murder charge.
