Two Albany people indicted for murder

Two Albany people are indicted for murder by a Dougherty County Grand Jury Wednesday, one a woman accused of beating her own mother to death.

40 year old Janice Ware was indicted and charged with murdering her Mother, Thelma Carter, at her West Gordon Avenue home December 14th. Investigators say Ware has a history of drug problems and arrests.

31 year old Laderick Chappell was also indicted for the murder of 54 year old Frankie Carr, who was beaten to death with a pipe October 29th beside East Broad Avenue.

Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards said "Neither of these cases have presented facets that present the issue of death penalty in terms of the aggravated circumstances."

Both Chappell, known as Pee Wee, and Ware, are being held in the Dougherty County jail. Their trials are not expected to start before September.
