LACEY’S SPRING, Ala. (WHNT) – A Morgan County grand jury has indicted a man for the murder his ex-wife.

Rodney David Hagood, of 496 River Loop Road, is in custody at the Morgan County Jail.  He is being held on $200,000 bond.

His ex-wife, Stacy Edwards Hagood, was found dead the morning of February 14, Valentine’s Day, at the couple’s home.  That was their wedding anniversary.

Rodney Hagood was initially charged with manslaughter, but the grand jury issued a murder indictment after reviewing the case this month.

Investigators haven’t said how Stacy Hagood died.
