Montgomery Police say 27-year-old Detective Tanisha Pughsley was killed in her home early Monday morning in the 6700 block of Overview Drive. Police say the incident appears to be domestic-related.

MPD charged 24-year-old Brandon Webster, of Montgomery, with Attempted Murder, Capital Murder during a Burglary, and Capital Murder in violation of a court-issued Protection Order.

Court records show that Detective Pughsley filed a restraining order against Webster on May 28. The order indicates that Pughsley and Webster were in a current or former relationship at the time it was filed.

Webster was taken into custody by United States Marshals Task Force and placed in the Montgomery County Detention Facility. He is currently held on $150,000 bond.
