Authorities have apprehended Morgan County murder suspect, Rodney Hagood.

Morgan County Investigators responded to a home on River Loop Road where a family member found the body of Stacey Hagood inside the house.

Deputies said the suspect is the ex-husband, Rodney Hagood. They said an argument broke out Tuesday where police were called. When they arrived at the home, Rodney had left.

He returned on Wednesday, but the daughter said the couple fought all the time and it wasn't a big deal.

When the daughter returned to the house on Thursday, she found her mother inside.

Investigators have not released the cause of death, but they said she was not shot.

Officials said the couple divorced but had reconciled and was living together. Thursday was their anniversary.

The couple has a history of domestic violence and the husband also had a history with drugs and alcohol.

Hagood was taken into custody Thursday evening.
