Rev. Al Sharpton's half-brother is under arrest for capital murder in the shooting death of an Alabama woman. Pastor Kenneth Glasgow was arrested the day after he spoke at a March for Our Lives rally on Saturday.
Glasgow, 52, and another man, Jamie Townes, 26, were arrested in Dothan, Alabama on Sunday and charged in the shooting death of Breunia Jennings, 23.

Glasgow was the driver of a vehicle that Townes was a passenger in. The two men were riding around looking for Jennings because they thought she had stolen Townes' car.
When they spotted Jennings, Townes allegedly fired several rounds into her car. She died from a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Dothan Eagle.
During a hearing this week, Glasgow questioned why he was facing capital murder charges.
"I don’t know why I am facing capital murder charges," Glasgow told the judge. "I’m not responsible for what someone else does. [Townes] just asked me for a ride to take him to look for his car.”
Glasgow's mother, Tina Glasgow, who attended the hearing informed the judge she would hire an attorney to represent him.
The judge denied bail until a preliminary hearing on April 6.
Glasgow, who often joined Rev. Sharpton at protest marches, spoke at the March for Our Lives rally in downtown Dothan on Saturday, March 24. The rally coincided with other rallies around the country pushing for gun control in the wake of the Parkland, Florida High school mass shooting on February 14.
March organizers in Dothan were troubled by the news of Pastor Glasgow's arrest.
"Kenneth Glasgow's alleged connection with this crime is very troubling to our organization. The organizers wish to remind the public that this march was not about one person. This march was about preventing gun violence," said organizer Kailee Maciulla in a press release on Monday.
Maciulla acknowledged that Glasgow, the executive officer of The Ordinary People Society, spoke at the rally, but she insisted he was not a scheduled speaker and he did not participate in the planning of the march or donate funds.
"We stand in support of all law enforcement efforts to curtail such activity, and we pray for justice for Breunia Jennings," she stated.
If convicted of capital murder, Glasgow faces life without the possibility of parole or death.
