HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Crews will soon tear down the Huntsville home where four people were gunned down over a stolen cell phone 17 years ago.

The person who owns the property on University Drive said crews are clearing the four-acre lot to tear down the home.

In September 1996, three men shot four others, execution style, at the home. Bryan Carter, 21; Michael Beaudette, 19; Johnny Couch, 18; and Lamar Hemphill, 21, were killed. Michelle Hayden, then 17, was shot in her face, elbow and abdomen. Ashley Rutherford, then 22, was shot in the back of the head and survived by pretending he was dead.

Nick Acklin, one of the men convicted of the murders, is asking for a new trial. A jury sentenced him and Joey Wilson to death.

Corey Johnson was released in 2011 after serving 15 years.
