Alabama woman killed by her husband who was recently arrested for attacking her.

A realtor in Alabama was murdered by her husband — who then killed himself — just three weeks after she petitioned the court to lift an order of protection that she took out on him, police said.

Firefighters discovered the bodies of Martella Tyler, 40, and Justin Tyler, 43, inside their Huntsville home after putting out a blaze at the residence on June 5.

Police arrested Justin in February after Martella claimed he attacked one of their three children and punched and stabbed her, states an order of protection granted after the alleged domestic violence incident, WAFF reported.

On May 12, the couple appeared in court together to request the protection order be dismissed, the station reported.

“She’s always been a larger-than-life person no matter what was going on,” said the victim’s cousin, Dametric Anderson. “If you were having a bad day, she was going to get you to smile and get you to laugh and get you to open up about what you were going through.”

Charlene Sullivan, owner of Leading Edge Real Estate Group, where Martella worked for five years, recalled she “was such a fireball” who was “always smiling and always laughing.”

Authorities hunt for the person who fatally shot a 12-year-old child in Chicago.

Police in Chicago continue to search for whoever is responsible for fatally shooting Nyziereya London Moore the day she celebrated her 12th birthday.

On March 2, Moore was struck and died when someone on the street unleashed a volley of bullets at the vehicle she was riding in and struck the child in the head.

“People say, I can't imagine,” said Nyree Moore, the victim’s mother, WMAQ-TV reported. “You don't want to imagine. You don't want to wake up without your child. I'm shopping for two kids, not three.”

“Every day I gotta get up, and I gotta push through this,” she continued, “because I won't stop until my baby get justice.”

Authorities have offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the anonymous Chicago Police Department tip line at (833) 408-0069 or submit a tip online.

The man accused of fatally shooting a retired Wisconsin judge dies from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Around 6:30 a.m. on June 3, the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about shots fired at the New Lisbon home of former circuit court judge John Roemer, 68.

After attempting to negotiate with the suspect, Douglas K. Uhde, 56, authorities entered the home and found the man dead in the basement from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Wisconsin Department of Justice said.

Uhde was transported to a local medical facility, where he was declared brain dead. He was removed from life support and died from his injuries on June 7.

According to NBC News, in 2005 the victim sentenced Udhe to six years behind bars in connection to an armed burglary case.

“It appears to be related to the judicial system,” Attorney General Josh Kaul said of the shooting.

A Missouri college student involved in a hazing incident returns home after suffering severe injuries.

Danny Santulli, a 19-year-old University of Missouri freshman allegedly forced to down a bottle of vodka while at a fraternity pledge party, suffered “massive brain damage,” an attorney for his family said.

“He’s blind. He’s unable to walk or communicate,” Attorney David Bianchi noted of the teenager, who recently returned to his family’s home in Minnesota after receiving treatment at a rehabilitation hospital in Colorado.

The Columbia Tribune reported that on Oct. 20, Santulli had a blood-alcohol content of 0.486, or over six times the legal limit to drive in Missouri, after he was involved in a hazing incident at the fraternity Phi Gamma Delta.

Bianchi noted the pledge was involved in “the granddaddy of all alcohol events” and the fraternity “literally had a truck to bring all the alcohol in.”

In May, Santulli’s parents settled a lawsuit they filed against the fraternity and 22 other defendants, according to the Tribune.

The manhunt continues for a suspect accused of killing a woman who had a brief romantic fling with her boyfriend, officials say.

Authorities are on the hunt for the Vermont yoga teacher suspected of murdering a cyclist in Texas last month.

On May 11, Kaitlin Armstrong, 34, allegedly fatally shot Anna Moriah Wilson, 25, at the victim’s home in Austin.

Armstrong, states an arrest warrant, allegedly “made prior statements expressing a desire to kill Wilson,” who briefly dated the suspect’s cyclist boyfriend, Colin Strickland.

Armstrong was spotted on surveillance video at LaGuardia airport in New York City after arriving from Houston three days after Wilson’s slaying.

On May 18, the U.S. Marshals revealed this week Armstrong was also at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey after someone dropped her off, however, no flights were found booked in her name.

“Kaitlin Armstrong is accused of a very serious crime that she needs to answer for,” said Susan Pamerlau, U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas. “The best thing she can do at this point, wherever she is, is surrender to authorities, so she can return safely to Austin and answer the charges against her. She needs to know the Marshals are not going to stop looking for her.”
