Police have identified a Warrenville woman who was fatally shot by her ex-boyfriend Wednesday morning.

Lacey Parker, 32, was pronounced dead at Georgia Regents University Medical Center, according to a statement from the Aiken County Coroner’s Office.

Todd Brown has been charged with murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and burglary.

Deputies responded to a 911 call around 7:20 a.m. at Parker’s home on the 500 block of Pine Street in Warrenville, where they found her in the front yard with a gunshot wound, according to an Aiken County sheriff’s new release.

Witnesses told deputies that Brown kicked in the front door. The couple got into a physical and verbal fight that led outside, where shots were fired.

Brown left the scene before deputies arrived, but was later arrested.

Parker’s autopsy was scheduled for Thursday morning in Newberry, S.C.

The punishment should fit the crime and so if this guy is convicted he should get the firing squad. Most likely he'll claim all sorts of mental illness and his lawyers will tell the jury about his troubled childhood. Bunk!

A person

convicted of physical abuse, 1st offense, should be locked away for at least 5 years. 2nd offense should put the death penalty into play.
