An Etowah County man faces a capital murder charge, accused of killing his own brother.

37-year-old Shawn Williams was charged late Wednesday. His brother Jamey Williams was found dead in Gadsden last Friday.

Investigators say Jamey was found shot to death inside a vehicle in his front yard. Shawn Williams was named a person of interest soon after.

Sheriff Todd Entrekin says Shawn attacked a deputy while he was being questioned Friday, and has been behind bars ever since.
