West Alabama Man Charged in 2019 Wreck that Killed 3 Relatives
A 32-year-old Aliceville man was arrested last week and charged with three counts of homicide after a December 2019 wreck that killed three of his family members.
Andy Hamlin, the District Attorney in Pickens County, said police believe Richard Lee Armstrong was speeding down Alabama Highway 32 near the Mississippi State line when his Dodge Durango left the road, struck a ditch and flipped several times.
Three people, Jeffrey Armstrong, Horace Armstrong and their cousin Joe Knox were all killed in the accident.
A Pickens County grand jury examined evidence collected by Alabama Law Enforcement Agency State Troopers and has indicted Richard Lee Armstrong on three counts of homicide.
He was arrested last Wednesday and placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where he remains pending payment of a $25,000 bond.
