Townes enters plea agreement


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) – A plea of not guilty is what Jamie Emanuel Townes entered during his arraignment hearing for capital murder charges against him for the death of 23-year-old Breunia Jennings on March 25, 2018.

According to Dothan Police, Townes was said to be the shooter and local community activist Pastor Kenneth Glasgow drove the vehicle that Townes entered after he asked him to help him look for his car which is believed had been stolen according to police.
WDHN spoke with one of Townes attorneys Clayton Tartt on this matter. He declined to discuss any details concerning his client involvement at this time.
“Obviously with a capital case you’re gonna deal with a little bit more extended deadline,” Tartt said. 
“They have not set a trial date yet, we don’t even have a hearing date yet and we have a lot that will probably require multiple hearings before we get a trial date, to be honest.”
Glasgow still awaits a trial as well and remains out on bond. Townes remains in the Houston County Jail without a bond.
