HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - After a woman was shot and killed last week, an autopsy confirms the cause of death is a fatal gunshot wound.

According to Madison County Coroner Tyler Berryhill, Courtney Spraggins was pregnant at the time of her death and the baby died as well. Spraggins’ death has been ruled a homicide.

The autopsy was completed on Monday by the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences Huntsville Regional Laboratory. No further details are available at this time.

Meanwhile, Spraggins’ mother and stepfather tell WAFF Wednesday that they will not be interviewing or commenting on the case anymore until after McCoy is sentenced.

They shared one last statement with us, for the time being. It reads, “We refuse to talk anymore about this case, any more about David McCoy, or our feelings about it, until after the trial. All we want to do is get our baby girl home so we can give her a proper funeral,” the Walter family.
