Husband, stepson charged with woman's murder

Posted: Updated:
Cullman County, AL (WAFF) -

Sheriff's deputies arrested a man and his stepson in connection with the murder of a woman in Cullman County.

On July 28, authorities charged Terry Mikel and his stepson Charles Christopher Burks with the murder of Mikel's wife, Angela Annette Mikel, 41. Deputies said she had been shot multiple times with a small caliber weapon.

Relatives told authorities that Angela Mikel separated from her husband because of domestic violence issues and that she had filed a protection from abuse order against him earlier in the week.

While deputies recovered evidence from Terry Mikel's residence on County Road 38 around 5:30 p.m., they received information that the suspects were seen running into a wooded area near Hanceville.

With help from the Alabama State Trooper helicopter and Cullman County K-9 units, authorities were able to locate and arrest the two suspects without incident around 10:27 p.m.

Bond for Mikel and Burks has not yet been set. Authorities are continuing to investigate the case.
