An Alabama grandmother mourning the loss of her mother-of-three daughter called the victim’s ex-boyfriend after the murder suspect smiled in court.

Carla Harrell told ABC affiliate WDHN that Benjamin Adam Nowell, 35, should either spend the rest of his life in prison or be put to death by the state for the July 2022 murder of his daughter Brittany Phillips. Nowell, who allegedly committed the crime a day after leaving a work release program linked to robbery and drug charges, was described by a friend of Phillips as “the crazy ex-boyfriend who never kept stalking her. Nowell allegedly followed Phillips as she took someone else from a party. He is accused of shooting Phillips in the head after he intentionally rammed his vehicle.
