BAY MINETTE, Ala. (WALA) - A family friend of missing teenager Brittney Wood was in court Thursday morning. William Brownlee is one of five men arrested for allegedly having sexual relations with an underage Fairhope girl.
Brownlee waived his preliminary hearing. The case is now headed to a grand jury.
The other four suspects are Wood's brother, cousin, and two uncles. They face the same charge as Brownlee.
Wood's aunt, Wendy Holland, was arrested last week and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Investigators say she knew about the sexual encounters with several young victims and didn't report it.
Holland's husband, Donald, was also a suspect in the case but he shot and killed himself days after Brittney Wood disappeared.
