GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A Greenville police officer is charged with murder in the shooting death of her husband.

Sgt. Kyvona Moore is being held in the Washington County jail under $300,000 bond. It was not immediately clear Tuesday whether she has an attorney.

The Delta Democrat-Times reports (https://bit.ly/1F4Gbie ) police responded to a call of a shooting late Saturday at the home where the 41-year-old Moore and her husband, 44-year-old Reginald Moore, were living.

He had been shot in the head and died early Sunday at Delta Regional Medical Center.

If convicted, Kyvona Moore faces life in prison. The case was turned over to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

She is suspended without pay from her job as the police department’s CrimeStoppers coordinator. She had earlier qualified to run for county supervisor this year.
