Greenville ex-officer indicted for murder in husband’s death

GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Attorney General Jim Hood says a former Greenville police officer has been indicted on a murder charge in the slaying of her husband.

A news release from Hood’s office Wednesday says 41-year-old Kvonya Moore was arrested Tuesday by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

She’s accused of shooting her husband, 44-year-old Reginald Moore, in the head with her police gun and killing him.

Investigators said Moore and her husband had returned home May 2 from her birthday party when the shooting occurred, and that the couple’s two children were at home.

Hood’s office says Moore, who had been the Washington County CrimeStoppers coordinator, was re-arrested Tuesday and released on $500,000 bail. That’s up from $300,000 bail she posted in May.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Moore has an attorney.
