Capital murder trial starts for suspect in 2015 crime spree, co-defendant pleads guilty

DECATUR, Ala. – A jury will spend the next several days listening to witnesses and attorneys as they determine the fate of Cortez Mitchell.

The 19-year-old is one of four young men police say gunned down Antonio Hernandez, 27, and Joshua Davis, 25. During their crime spree, police say they also committed multiple armed robberies. Mitchell, as well as Amani Goodwin, Cedric Cowan, and Joseph Cowan were arrested in May 2015, all charged with eleven felonies, including capital murder.

The four were between ages 16-20 at the time of the violent acts, and have all been denied youthful offender status.

Mitchell’s trial was first to be scheduled, starting Monday. He pleaded not guilty by reason of mental defect. During his youthful offender hearing, a psychologist testified his IQ was 70 and he has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old.

One of the co-defendants has accepted a plea deal.
