Capital murder indictment handed down in death of prominent Prattville woman

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - The suspect in a May 2016 homicide of a prominent Prattville resident has been indicted on a capital murder charge in connection to the case, according to court documents. Willie Foster Jr., 31, was indicted on March 17 for the death of Carol Nunnery, who employed him as her yard man.

According to statements made by Autauga County Sheriff Joe Sedinger during the initial investigation, Nunnery left her house to take Foster home as she normally did on days he worked for her. The sheriff said Foster drove the car.

Sedinger said Nunnery's body was reportedly found by an Autauga County resident on the edge of a pond on County Road 3. She was allegedly run over by her own car, which was found earlier in the day in a different location in Prattville.

Foster tried to get money from Nunnery, according to the sheriff, and some time after that point she suffered injuries from Foster that resulted in her death.

Nunnery, at one time, operated a small nursery on Highway 31. She co-founded the Autauga Creek Improvement Committee.
