HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A Huntsville man who was arrested in a robbery is being indicted in the shooting death of his alleged accomplice despite not having been inside the store at the time of the shooting.

AL.com (http://bit.ly/SXszhA) reports 33-year-old Courtneay Neal Nance was a getaway driver for a man who was fatally shot by a store clerk during a robbery on Aug. 16.

Under state law, if a person is killed during the commission of a felony, their accomplices can be charged for their death. The same law is being applied in a case involving three teens who were charged in the death of a 17-year-old girl during the commission of an alleged burglary at a south Alabama fishing camp.
