Fort Payne man guilty
A jury in Cherokee County has convicted a Fort Payne man of attempted murder, first-degree robbery and attempted arson. 45-year-old Charles Clayton Todd was arrested in April of last year, accused of breaking into a woman’s home in Broomtown, assaulting her with a deadly weapon, stealing property and setting her bed on fire. Carol Lowry was able to put out the flames and then call 9-1-1 for help. Lowry has since recovered from her injuries and was in the courtroom Wednesday as Todd was found guilty.
