Arraignment date set for Limestone Co. murder suspect

LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A Limestone County judge set a new arraignment date for a man accused of murder. Joel Moyers will go before a judge on Wednesday.

Investigators said Moyers shot and killed Brandon Hydrick on Fennell Road last September. Hydrick's brother, who was with him at the time, said they were lost, and were in the process of turning around.

Moyers claimed he thought the men were intruders and he only intended to scare them off with a warning shot into the truck's bumper.

His trial is set to begin in December.
