Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown pronounced Alma Fleming dead at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at her home on the 500 block of South Stebbins Street in Wellborn.
Brown said by phone this morning that an autopsy showed Fleming died from multiple stab wounds to the chest.
Anniston police Capt. Allen George said police charged Walter Craig Pinkston, 32, of Anniston and Monica Marie Shively, 30, of Anniston Wednesday in Fleming’s death. George said investigators believe the couple had been helping Fleming with chores such as yard work.
George said police picked the two up Wednesday at the State Trooper post in Jacksonville. Pinkston was at the post to pay fines and reinstate his driver’s license, the captain said.
