2 suspects jailed in robbery-slaying


Two suspects are in jail each facing a capital murder charge in the weekend shooting death of a Wagarville store owner.

Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer said 22-year-old Corey Allen Wimbley of Wagerville and Juan Crayton of McIntosh are accused of shooting 55-year-old Ray Wheat inside Harris Cash Grocery along U.S. 43 on Friday morning.

The sheriff said the shooting occurred during an apparent robbery and an attempt to burn the store.

Wimbley was captured nearly five hours after the shooting at a bus station in Mobile, where he had purchased a ticket to Florida.

Stringer said Crayton surrendered to sheriff's deputies Sunday afternoon.

Wagerville is approximately 56 miles north of Mobile.
