HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The case against a Madison County murder suspect is going to a grand jury.

A judge ruled there was sufficient evidence for a jury to decide whether charges will be filed against Erskine Hughes.

Authorities said Hughes shot and killed 73-year-old Richard Kier in March.

In testimony heard Wednesday, the victim's wife said Hughes and Kier were real estate partners and had some kind of disagreement going for 10 years.
