Anniston police said today they have charged a man in the April 6 shooting death of Dequirea Royal at Constantine Homes.

In a release issued this afternoon, police said Kenmonte Jacobe Winsley, 23, of Anniston is charged with murder in connection with Royal’s death. Winsley was being held at the Calhoun County Jail on unrelated charges when officers this morning served the warrant for his arrest on the murder charge.

Royal, 24, was as a sergeant in Alabama National Guard’s 167th Forward Support Company in Oxford, where she worked as a cook. She had been in the Guard for seven years and had plans to deploy to Afghanistan in June.

Around 1:30 p.m. on Good Friday, 911 operators received a call about the shooting at Constantine Homes. Police found Royal in her apartment, dead of a gunshot wound to her head.

Bond for Winsley on the murder charge is set at $75,000. He is scheduled to appear in court June 11.
