Woman arrested in Sheffield home invasion

— SHEFFIELD, Ala. (AP) — Police in northern Alabama say they've arrested the woman who served as the getaway driver in a deadly February home invasion.

Police say 34-year-old Krystal Dawn Riddle, of Tuscumbia, has been arrested for murder in the death of 27-year-old Dorian Cliff Hamilton.

Authorities have said 22-year-old Damien Shipley and 20-year-old Donta Montgomery and a third man broke into Hamilton's house Feb. 22 looking for drugs and money. Shipley and Montgomery have been arrested, and U.S. Marshals are helping police look for the third suspect.

WAAY-TV reports (http://bit.ly/13Sfl9w ) Riddle's bail has been set at $250,000, and it is unclear if the woman has an attorney.

Sheffield is just south of Florence.
