Governor plans visit to South Alabama towns

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley plans to visit with law enforcement officials in the south Alabama towns affected by Alabama's deadliest shooting spree on record.

Jeff Emerson, a spokesman for the governor, said Riley would travel to the area on Wednesday afternoon or evening to meet with local law enforcement officials to make sure they have everything they need.

Michael McLendon, 28, set his mother's house on fire and killed her.

He then killed nine other people, including four other relatives, in two towns before killing himself.

Emerson said Riley was not planning any public appearances.
