Police: Woman beat her husband to death with her broom

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Court documents unsealed following the indictment of a 76-year-old woman charged with her husband's murder reveal new details into the March 2013 death. Documents say Madie Ivey killed her husband by beating him to death with her broomstick. 

Ivey was arrested and charged with the murder of her 77-year-old husband, Dave Ivey, back on March 5. Police originally stated that Ivey had been struck on the head and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Documents unsealed after Madie Ivey's indictment for murder by a Montgomery County grand jury last week reveal that investigators say she beat her husband to death with her broomstick. 

Police believe the couple were involved in a verbal altercation in their Eastdale Road South apartment that day when it escalated to violence and resulted in Dave Ivey's death.

Ivey was Montgomery's 13th homicide of 2013.
