A local teenager who's felony murder charge was dismissed last year is now facing the same charge.

19-year-old Taylor Law was arrested Monday and booked into metro after being re-charged with felony murder due to a "secret indictment" handed down by a Grand Jury.

Law was arrested in connection with the murder of Justin Edwards in the parking lot of a shopping center on Airport Boulevard near Montlimar Drive back in November of 2017.

In January of 2018, the charge was dismissed by a Mobile County District Court judge. Judge Joe Basenberg ruled that there was no evidence presented at a preliminary hearing to show that Taylor Law had participated in the crime.

Law is facing those charges with Ryland Kidd. Investigators say Kidd was the one who pulled the trigger.

Both Law and Kidd are out of jail on bond. We should learn more about this new indictment when Law heads to court.
