HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A capital murder suspect filed a motion for bail, claiming he wasn't brought before a judge within 48 hours after his arrest.

Anthony Ray Battle's motion hearing was held last week in a Madison County courtroom. Battle is charged with capital murder for the shooting death of Timothy Smith.

The shooting happened in January on Knight Road.

The judge set Battle's bond at $50,000. At last check, Battle was still in the Madison County Metro Jail.
