The half-brother of Al Sharpton has been jailed on charges of capital murder after he allegedly fatally shot a 23-year-old Alabama woman in a dispute over a car. In a news release Tuesday, the Dothan Police Department said Kenneth Glasgow, 52, was arrested after Breunia Jennings was found dead in a wrecked car late Sunday night around 10:50 p.m.

Dothan Police have also arrested 26-year-old Jaime Townes in connection with the murder. The victim's untimely end comes just one day after Glasgow's homeless and community ministry, Ordinary People Society, marched with the nationwide March For Our Lives movement which protested gun violence and sought stricter gun control measures.

Police also said that the dispute between Townes and the victim was because he believed she had stolen his car. "Instead of him notifying law enforcement, he took matters into his own hands and jumped in Mr. Glasgow’s vehicle to find Breunia Jennings," according to Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish.
Parrish described Jenning's death as being the result of "a gunshot wound to the head." Townes is believed to have fired several rounds at the victim's vehicle while she was driving. "I want the family of Breunia Jennings to know our thoughts and prayers go out to them during this time," Parrish added.
Police say several people were in the car at the time of the shooting and additional arrests could still be made. Glasgow appeared in court Tuesday and repeatedly questioned the murder charge against him. "I don’t know why I am facing capital murder charges. I'm not responsible for what someone else does. He just asked me for a ride to take him to look for his car," he said.

The judge wisely told Glasgow he should refrain from making any comments until he has spoken with an attorney. The judge also denied bail because of the nature of the charges. Under Alabama law, a murder committed by or through the use of a deadly weapon while the victim is in a vehicle is considered a capital crime.
Also, anyone who is believed to have aided or abetted a crime is equally liable for the crime even if they themselves did not pull the trigger of the gun. The 52-year-old Glasgow has been involved with his community since being released from prison for a 1980's drug conviction.
He has called himself Rev. Kenny Sharpton Glasgow due to being the half-brother of Rev. Al Sharpton, the founder of the National Action Network. Glasgow is scheduled to appear next in court on April 6 where a judge will determine if there is enough evidence to send the charge to a grand jury for indictment.
