MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – A judge in Mobile County denied bond for Nathanael McCorvey Wednesday saying he was a danger to the public.
McCorvey is charged with murder, robbery and kidnapping after an incident Monday at a home on Westchester Drive in Theodore where one woman was found dead in her front yard. The victim was identified as 45-year-old Shannon Montgomery.
Prosecutors also revealed new information about the events leading up to the shooting and the events after Montgomery was killed. Prosecutors say there were three separate victims for each one of the charges that McCorvey faces.
During his bond hearing, prosecutors said McCorvey went to the home on Westchester Drive to confront his ex-girlfriend who was staying at Montgomery’s home. During an argument, he stole her backpack, according to prosecutors. During the argument, Montgomery’s dog began barking and prosecutors say McCorvey shot at the dog. Montgomery got in the way of the bullet to protect her dog and was struck. She later died from the wounds.
After the shooting, prosecutors say McCorvey held his ex-girlfriend’s mother at gunpoint and told her to get in her car to drive them away. She later showed up back at the scene after McCorvey fled.
McCorvey’s arraignment is set for Thursday in Mobile County.
