MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Huntsville man accused of murder will not face charges.

A Madison County Grand Jury handed down a ‘no-bill' in the case of Michael Pierce. He was facing a capital murder charge.

He was accused in the shooting death of Charles Swinford, who was found shot to death in his home on Lex Drive in Huntsville in May 2013.

Investigators said Swinford was killed during a robbery. Last month, Michael Fletcher pleaded guilty to Swinford's murder. As part of a plea deal, Fletcher was sentenced to 25 years in prison with no parole.
