Man charged in shooting death of Midfield businessman

MIDFIELD, Ala. (AP) — A man has been charged in the slaying of a Midfield businessman whose body was discovered last week.

Midfield police Sgt. Jesse Bell tells news outlets that 48-year-old Gary Rembert was formally charged Friday with capital murder in 50-year-old Glenn Hardy’s death.

Police say Hardy’s body was discovered in the former Coram Wholesale building early Wednesday morning. He was last seen alive there last Monday night.

Investigators were searching for Rembert, who they called a person of interest in the case.

Police say the capital murder charge stems from the killing of Hardy during the course of a robbery. Hardy’s truck, and an undisclosed amount of money, was taken.

Family and friends say Hardy owned several businesses including a hair salon in Midfield.

It’s unclear if Rembert has an attorney.
