Carter is also charged with attempted murder in the wounding of Moorer’s girlfriend, Shakiaria Barley, who was shot in the leg at Selma Square Apartments. He’s the second suspect charged in Moorer’s death.

The other suspect charged in Moorer’s death, Javonte Stubbs, 19, a former Selma High football star, was arrested at the Links Apartment in Tuscaloosa on July 28, the day after Moorer was killed. Stubbs was arraigned in the Dallas County Courthouse last month.

The motive for the fatal shooting remains unknown. Authorities said Moorer was found in his bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest. Over 12 rounds were fired into the apartment.
