HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A Madison County grand jury declined to indict a Madison County man in connection with a 2013 Huntsville murder.

The grand jury issued a no bill in the case against Michael Pierce and ordered he be released from the Madison County Jail last week.

Pierce was charged in the May 2013 shooting death of Charles Swinford.  His son, Michael Fletcher pleaded guilty in connection with this case last month.

Fletcher was sentenced to 25 years in prison as part of that plea agreement.  Fletcher admitted to shooting Swinford during a drug deal.
