MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

Mobile Police have made an arrest in the shooting death of University of South Alabama graduate Kelei Morris. Police arresting 33-year-old Steven Mason on a grand jury indictment. 

Morris, who was 24 at the time of her death was shot outside of her West Mobile apartment in February of 2015. She worked as a respiratory therapist at Mobile Infirmary. 

Mason was questioned for hours before being escorted out of Mobile Police headquarters in handcuffs into a patrol car. He did not have much to say other than denying any wrong doing and maintaining his innocence. 

Mobile Police would not discuss any evidence in the case that led to the arrest.  

"It's still an open investigation, we can't go into details of that nature right now with it still being an active investigation going on. Investigators have been questioning him," said Ofc. Donald Wallace, Mobile Police. 

Mason is very familiar with this process. He was arrested in 2002 for the murder of his girlfriend 17-year-old Mesha Anglin. Mason was 18 at the time. Anglin's family says he was convicted in the case but only served three years in prison because he received youthful offender status. 

Anglin's mother and twin sister, along with friends showed up at police headquarters to confront Mason. They say they want to see him behind bars. 

"We felt horrible about it. We felt that he had won. So now that this had happened we just hope he gets the time he deserves. Double time. We hope he never gets out. Never sees the light of day again because he's a murderer," said Kesha Anglin, Mesha's twin sister. 

Mason has been booked into Metro Jail charged with murder.
