WACO (December 19, 2012)—The capital murder trial of the second defendant in a shooting outside a Waco apartment complex that left two dead and two injured will be moved to Georgetown.
State District Judge Ralph Strother has granted a motion for a change of venue filed by attorneys representing Albert Leslie Love, Jr., who’s charged with capital murder in the March 2011 deaths of Keenan Hubert, 20, and Tyus Sneed, 17, both of whom died in a hail of bullets as they sat inside a car parked at Lakewood Villas apartment complex.
On Nov. 7, Rickey Donnell Cummings, 23, of Waco, was sentenced to death for his role in the murders.
Marion Bible, then 22, and Deontrae Majors, then 20, were wounded in the shooting, which prosecutors say was in retaliation for the April 2010 murder of Emuel Bowers III, 21, who was shot as he sat in his car at the intersection of Rose and McKeen Streets.
Love, Tyrece Edward Richards, Darvis Tyrell Cumings, and Kennedy Wayne Hardway, who's also known as Kevin Wayne Hardaway, were indicted in the shooting, but prosecutors later dismissed the capital murder charge against Richards.
Ricky and Darvis Cummings and Tyrece Richards are brothers. Kennedy Hardway is their cousin, authorities said, and the four are closely associated with Love.
