MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Court documents filed in the murder of Lauren Wright shed some new light into the teen’s death over the weekend.  The criminal complaint filed by Demopolis police claim that Dalton Jowers did “engage in conduct which manifested extreme indifference to human life.”  The complaint also states that Jowers “did recklessly discharge a 9mm firearm causing the death of Lauren Wright.

Dalton Jowers bond was initially set at no bond but lowered at a hearing on Monday to $10,000.00.  Court papers obtained by News 5 indicate that Jowers is requesting a public defender to represent him on the Murder charge.
