Al Sharpton's half brother, who joined a political march against gun rights on Saturday, was charged as an accessory to a murder committed on Sunday in Dothan, Alabama.

Here's what happened

According to Dothan police, on the night of the alleged murder, 52-year-old Rev. Kenneth Glasgow and 26-year-old Jamie Townes sought out Breunia Jennings, aged 26, because they believed that she stole Townes' automobile.

When they found her, Townes shot at her as she drove away, striking her in the head and killing her. Police say Glasgow was driving the car when the murder was committed.

“Instead of him notifying law enforcement, he took matter in his own hands and jumped in Mr. Glasgow's vehicle to find Breunia Jennings," said Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish.

Alabama has an aiding and abetting law which allows an accomplice of a murder, such as a driver, to be charged with capital murder as well as the person who directly committed the act.

March for our Lives

Ironically, Glasgow had participated in a "March for our Lives" demonstration on the day before police allege he was an accomplice to the murder of Breunia Jennings.

Glasgow was an ex-convict who had joined his half brother in his community activism. He organized a group called the The Ordinary People Society to advocate for restoring voting rights to convicts.

According to the Washington Examiner, Glasgow also marched against police violence and in the demonstrations over the police shooting of Trayvon Martin.

His website also included a photo of him with Hillary Clinton which is now being circulated on social media:
