New court documents show victim denied protection order

Newly obtained court documents show that a woman who was shot and killed Saturday had previously filed for a protection order against her ex-husband, who is facing charges for her death. Kay Stevens had filed for a protection order against Roger Dale Stevens in 2014, which was denied. In the court documents, Stevens says her then-husband had threatened to kill her and also shot fireworks at her apartment. Kay was shot in front of The Corner Bakery Saturday and later died from her injuries. Roger Dale Stevens was arrested and charged with her murder.


Bentley stands by decision blocking refugees

Sunday night, Governor Robert Bentley announced that he refuses to allow any Syrian refugees relocate to Alabama. In a statement release, the governor says, "The acts of terror committed over the weekend are a tragic reminder to the world that evil exists and takes the form of terrorists who seek to destroy the basic freedoms we will always fight to preserve," Bentley said. "I will not place Alabamians at even the slightest possible risk of an attack on our people."
