MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – Dramatic testimony Thursday during a preliminary hearing for a woman charged with murdering her husband, a local Army sergeant.
Eugenia Campbell and Alexander Williams are charged with the shooting death of Sergeant ReMano Campbell at his Eight Mile home in 2011.
ReMano Campbell’s mother, Patricia, wore a T-shirt with her son’s picture and was in the courtroom listening to testimony given by authorities.
She said, “Some things that came out today just went to my head, how he was murdered.”
TESTIMONY FROM DETECTIVES
Mobile County District Attorney investigator Mike Morgan testified Williams confessed to the murder after his arrest.
Mobile County Assistant District Attorney Jill Phillips told reporters, “According to the Defendant Williams statement, was, yes, Eugenia Campbell provided him with the weapon, drove him to the location, agreed to split insurance proceeds with him, and picked him up from the location, and that, sometime after her husband’s death, they established a residence together and since had a child together.”
Eugenia Campbell’s attorney, Jonathan Friedlander, maintains her innocence.
Friedlander said, “The co-defendant said things about her without really a whole lot to back it up.”
VICTIM SHOT ABOUT 13 TIMES
Police also testified ReMano Campbell was shot about 13 times.
Patricia Campbell said, “That was the hardest part, them telling us how he emptied the clip on him like that. That was my baby.”
A detective also testified Williams told him the insurance policy Eugenia Campbell agreed to split with him was worth about $200,000.
Patricia Campbell said, “You can make $200,000 a year if you got out and worked. What’s that?”
Campbell and Williams were both ordered held without bond.
Their case has been sent to a grand jury.
