PRICHARD, Ala. (WALA) - Joseph Caples and Zachery Moore appeared in court Monday, July 22.
Both said they would have an attorney by now, but neither had a representative. The men waived their right to a preliminary hearing.
The case was bound to a grand jury. Along with attempted murder, Caples is facing robbery charges which originally he had been given a $100,000 bond for.
On Sunday, June 30, an Eight Mile gas station cashier was beaten and robbed at gun point and was caught on video.
It was Melissa Powell's last day working at the Petro station on Saint Stephens Road, when two men walked inside the store just before 8 a.m.
Investigators believe Moore was Caples accomplice. He is also facing robbery charges. The surveillance video from the Petro gas station shows the entire attack.
The video shows the suspect , who investigators identified as Caples, repeatedly hitting the clerk with a gun.
Powell sat in the front row during the hearing. She wanted her accused attackers to know she is not afraid.
"I was trying to let those boys read my mind," said Powell.
The former store clerk sat with her daughter, Brittney Powell.
"He walked in like he was Mr. It. We both just sat there and smiled the whole time," said Brittney Powell.
Powell said it was more upsetting to see Moore in court, because she's helped him in the past.
"He told me his mother was dying and I gave him money to catch the bus several times," said Powell.
Powell said she's not missing a court date.
"I'm going to sit there every time and remind him I'm not letting this go," said Powell.
She hopes victims of violent crimes find some courage in her story.
