A Campbellsville woman was indicted for murder Wednesday in the 2009 death of her husband, an off-duty Lebanon police officer.
Tonya M. Ford, 37, of Campbellsville was arrested at the Taylor County Courthouse after a grand jury listened to the testimony of 17 witnesses, state police said in a news release.
Her husband, David Ford, 40, was found shot in the head in his Campbellsville home on Feb. 10, 2009. Tonya Ford called 911 and reported finding his body, police said.
Trooper Billy Gregory, spokesman for state police post 15, said Tonya Ford was arrested after officers examined "the totality of the circumstances and what we have uncovered through a year and a half of investigation." He did not elaborate.
Never miss a local story.
David Ford had been an officer in Marion County for three and a half years. Before serving on the Lebanon police force, he was the sole police officer in the Bradfordsville community, assistant Lebanon police chief Wally Brady said.
"As a department as a whole, we're glad to see there has been an arrest in David's case," Brady said. "It does start some closure for the department."
Brady described David Ford as "a fine officer" who was "always willing to help someone in need."
Tonya M. Ford was being held in the Taylor County Jail on a $30,000 full cash bond.
