TALLAPOOSA CO., AL (WSFA) - A Tallapoosa County grand jury will now decide whether to indict a man on a capital murder charge.

Suspected killer Nicholas Seth Harrison had his preliminary hearing this week and the judge felt there was enough evidence to forward the file on to a grand jury.

Alex City police say Harrison shot and killed 21-year old Denzel Pope while Pope was driving westbound on Highway 280 in September.

Investigators say the alleged motive was jealousy involving a former girlfriend who was dating Pope.

Harrison remains in the Tallapoosa County jail with no chance of making bond since it's a capital murder case.
