SELMA , Ala. (AP) - A Selma man has been arrested and charged with capital murder in the death of a local woman.

Selma Police Chief William Riley said 29-year-old Thaddeus Aaron was arrested Monday and charged in the Oct. 20 shooting death of Helen Roper. Riley said Roper was not the intended target. The victim's brother was also wounded in the drive-by shooting.

Police said it appeared Aaron sought revenge after his nephew was wounded in a separate incident. Aaron was also charged with first-degree assault. He was being held without bond in the Dallas County Jail.
