UNION COUNTY — A woman charged in connection with the 2015 fatal shooting of her aunt will be in court Monday afternoon.
In a statement released Friday afternoon, the Sixteenth Circuit Solicitor’s Office announced that a hearing has been scheduled in the case of the State of South Carolina vs. Dabriada Alman. The press release states that the hearing will be held in General Sessions Court Monday at 2 p.m. in the Main Courtroom of the Union County Courthouse.
Alman, 40, is charged by the Union County Sheriff’s Office with transferring a weapon to a convicted felon and accessory after the fact of murder.
The charges against Alman stem from the shooting death of Rebecca Tyler, 61, 1303 River Road. Tyler’s lifeless body was found in her home on Nov. 19. She had been shot three times with a handgun including once in the brain, once in the heart, and once in the abdomen.
Alman is Rebecca Tyler’s niece and is one of two people charged in connection with her aunt’s death.
The other defendant in the case is Ashley Tyler, 40, a stepson of Rebecca Tyler.
Tyler is charged by the Sheriff’s Office with failure to register as a sex offender, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and murder.
Alman was arrested in November and remained in the Union County Jail until released on bond in February.
Tyler was also arrested in November and has remained in custody since then except for one day in August when he and another inmate were at-large after escaping from the Union County Jail. They were recaptured the day after their escape and both Tyler and his fellow escapee are currently being held in the Spartanburg County Jail.
