Criminal Details

The Dothan Eagle
Matt Elofson - Oct 13, 2009

The last of three people charged in a murder at a Dothan nightclub pleaded guilty Tuesday to his involvement in the August 2006 slaying.

Albert Lee McLeod, 25, of Paige Court, Ozark, pleaded guilty to felony manslaughter for his role in the shooting death of Byron Belser, 21, at the Champagne Lounge.

District Attorney Doug Valeska said Circuit Court Judge Lawson Little sentenced McLeod to serve 20 years in prison for the manslaughter charge.

Valeska said McLeod was charged as the get-away driver in the shooting. Valeska said McLeod did not go inside the nightclub, but the murder weapon was found inside his car. Belser died from a single gunshot wound to his leg.

Dothan police investigators arrested McLeod on Aug. 19, 2006, and charged him with felony capital murder during a robbery.

A jury found the shooter, Kenneth McKinnis, guilty last October of capital murder for Belser’s death and a judge affirmed their recommendation to sentence him to death.

McLeod faces two to 20 years in prison for the class B felony of manslaughter.

A third person, Kyle McIntosh, 24, of Ozark, pleaded guilty last year to a felony manslaughter charge for his involvement in the shooting. Valeska said McIntosh was sentenced to serve 15 years in prison.
