Murder trial delayed again - The capital murder trial for a Bibb County man accused of killing his wife more than 13 years ago has been delayed until next year. A jury trial for Jody Byrd, 44, was scheduled to take place in Bibb County Circuit Court this week. Trial dates have been reset three times, most recently after a new prosecutor took over the case. Byrd is accused of shooting his wife, Desta Dodson-Byrd, at their home in Brierfield on Feb. 25, 1999. He told investigators that he found his wife’s body outside their house near his .22-caliber rifle when he returned home from work. He was charged with her murder in May 2011, but prosecutors have never said what new evidence allegedly linked him to the killing. The indictment charges that Byrd killed his 29-year-old wife to collect insurance money. Blount County District Attorney Pamela Casey was appointed on Oct. 17 to prosecute the case because the Bibb County district attorney has a full case load. “I’m really eager to try this case,” Casey said. “There is a lot of work for me to do in order to get it ready to go to trial. I need to talk to a lot of witnesses, visit the scene and get everything squared away before we start. Hopefully, depending on everyone’s schedule, it will go to trial by summer.” Birmingham attorney Bill Dawson, who is representing Byrd, said it would be inappropriate for him to comment about the case before it goes to trial. Byrd is free on bond, which is unusual for a defendant charged with capital murder. Dawson filed a civil action in August 2011, requesting that a bond be set. He cited Byrd’s stable job, the fact that he still lives in the Brierfield home he shared with his wife, his previous cooperation with law enforcement and the time that has passed since her death as reasons he should be released. He called the evidence against his client “circumstantial” and “weak” based on discovery materials he received from the prosecutor. Bibb County Circuit Judge Jack Meigs wrote in a motion setting bond that “the evidence of the murder occurring for pecuniary gain as alleged in the indictment is slight,” and set the bond at $750,000. Very little happened in the investigation until last year, when Desta Dodson-Byrd’s friends formed a group called “Justice For Desta.” The group launched a website and paid for several billboards in Jefferson County that showed a photograph of the striking young woman and the message “Because no one should get away with murder.” Byrd spoke at a candlelight vigil the group held in Linn Park on the 12th anniversary of her death. Investigators with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation, the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office and Bibb County district attorney’s office began to review the case when they were approached by the group, fueled mainly by Dodson-Byrd’s friend, Christine Shattuck, and her friend, Ann Coyle. Dodson-Byrd spent the last day of her life home sick from her job at the Social Security Administration. She and her husband had been living at the house they built in eastern Bibb County for about a year. She was an animal lover who volunteered at the Humane Society and had a Siberian husky named Dakota. She was a fan of the rock band Def Leppard, and can be seen in the front row in concert footage featured in two of their videos. The couple were acquaintances while they were students at Minor High School in the 1980s, but they didn’t begin to date until after high school. They married in 1993. 18376
