Four indicted on capital murder charges related to death of "Critter Man" | Crime
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Four people connected with the death of Montgomery's "Critterman" have been indicted on capital murder charges relating to the January 2011 crime.
Four people, former physician David Nash, the mother of one of McNeil's children, Serenna English, and cousins Jeremy and Kindall Riley were indicted by a Montgomery County Grand Jury in connection with the January 2011 stabbing death of Ralph "The Critter Man" McNeil.
McNeil was found stabbed to death on the ground 35 feet from his Toyota Tacoma that had been set on fire around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday January 18 on Pilgrim Street.
Authorities believe Nash and English, who were engaged at the time, conspired together to hire Jeremy and Kindall Riley to kill McNeil. English and McNeil were in the middle of a custody battle at the time of McNeil's murder.
Nash and English were both indicted on one count each of capital murder. Jeremy and Kindall English each face three counts of capital murder related to the arson and robbery also connected to McNeil's death.
David Nash was first in the news in 2005 after the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners confirmed Nash was the Montgomery doctor whose license was revoked after he was caught injecting saline solutions in patients instead of the flu vaccine.
Jeremy Riley pleaded guilty to manslaughter in 2008 related to shooting death of Alexander Shorts. Riley had received an 18 month prison sentence for that crime and was on probation at the time of McNeil's death.
Kindall Riley was also arrested and charged in April 2011 with the November 8, 2010 stabbing death of Club Envy owner Antonio Glanton.
