"The assistant district attorney for Coosa County and a Gadsden attorney arrested Wednesday night used the threat of capital murder charges in a 1995 double homicide to try and extort $1 million."
The Gadsden Times has reported Bailey, 58, represented a third man who survived the incident, Roger Darrell Firestone, of Hokes Bluff, in a potential lawsuit. Teel, 59, was associated with the case.
"That was the source of their bargaining," Chris Bence, spokesman for Attorney General Troy King, told The Birmingham News.
Here is a photo line up of the three
men indicted in the murders and attempted murder.
Bailey is the lawyer for the guy that survived.
