Court records show a man is facing a murder charge after strangling a Huntsville woman to death in November on Sullivan Road.
Otis Terrial Nelson is charged with murder in the death of Mary Washington. Washington was found dead in her home Nov 9 after receiving a call that she was unresponsive in her home.
The Madison County Coroner's Office at the time called the death suspicious in nature, and autopsy results showed that Washington died as a result of strangulation, and the case was ruled a homicide days later.
Nelson was booked in the Madison County Jail on a $75,000 bond Nov 14. A preliminary hearing is set for Jan 10.
WAAY 31 was unable to obtain Nelson's booking photo through the Madison County Jail as of Friday.
