An Anniston man faces an attempted murder charge for allegedly shooting a woman while in her car in February.

A Calhoun County grand jury on May 9 indicted Jaquavious Akeem Weathers, charging him with the attempted murder of Alexis Mercedes McRath.

Weathers was arrested Feb. 7, charged with attempted murder, possession of a controlled substance, first-degree assault and shooting a firearm into a vehicle, according to court records.

Those records indicate Weathers is charged with shooting into a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu occupied by McRath on Feb. 1. Weathers was released from jail Feb. 8. on a $20,000 bond.

Attempts Tuesday to reach Anniston police and Randy Moeller, the Calhoun County assistant district attorney prosecuting the case, for comment were unsuccessful.

Attempts to reach Weathers’ attorney, Richard Couch, and McRath for comment were also unsuccessful Tuesday.

Weathers is scheduled for arraignment on June 24.
