MONTGOMERY, Ala. (CBS Atlanta/AP) — Montgomery police have arrested two 19-year-old Taco Bell employees in the slaying of the restaurant’s night manager.
Police say Renauldous Chisolm and Kenneth Temple of Montgomery were arrested Monday and are charged with capital murder in the killing of 43-year-old Vettia Roche.
Police say the woman was killed during an armed robbery while she was leaving the restaurant. Roche’s body was found behind the restaurant Monday morning. Local media outlets reported that court documents said Roche was beaten with a tire iron and shot multiple times.
Tommy Johnson, owner of JOT Copy Center, told the Montgomery Advertiser that he saw Roche’s body lying in the drive-thru lane.
Kathy Taylor, an elder at Women at New Life House of Prayer Ministries, was shocked at the brutality of the murder.
“In the almost two years that I’ve been here, we haven’t had any problems in this area,” Taylor told the Advertiser.
Chisolm and Temple are being held without bond in the Montgomery County Jail. It’s unclear if the men have attorneys.
