Huntsville officer charged with capital murder no longer employed

Huntsville Officer Mccoy

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – A Huntsville police officer charged with capital murder in the shooting death of his pregnant girlfriend from Georgia no longer works for the department.

Chief Mark McMurray told a news briefing Thursday that 28-year-old David Michael McCoy was placed on unpaid leave and terminated after his arrest in the killing of 26-year-old Courtney Spraggins of Trion, Georgia.

The woman was found dead in a car that was parked at apartments where McCoy lived. The chief said McCoy wasn’t working at the time, but responding officers knew who he was and realized something wasn’t right.
