He came back into the system in 2003 for two counts of sell of cocaine, for which he received 10 years each and 5 years probations running concurrent.

Kendrick Brown was a twice-convicted drug dealer who was facing a third conviction for selling drugs. His indictments and convictions are posted below. He was killed this morning in the parking lot of the Madison County courthouse by William B. Wells. Mr. Wells will have an initial appearance at 10:00 tomorrow morning. It is thought that Wells shot Brown in retaliation for the attempted murder of his mother this weekend when she was shot in Canton.
