PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) – A Phenix City man that has been connected to a murder in Dayton, OH was found dead in his apartment on Riverchase Drive in Phenix City shortly after noon on Wednesday.

It appears 43-year-old Tommy Swint's wounds were self-inflicted.  We're told Swint was indicted in Dayton, OH for the 1991 murder Tina Ivery just hours before the Alabama Bureau of Investigation tried to arrest him.

Investigators say when they descended on the suspect's home Wednesday to serve a warrant, they heard gunshots and then found his body inside. Click here to read the murder indictment.

According to a press release from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, Ivery's partially-nude body was found on December 17, 1991 in a trash pile off Dayton-Liberty Road in Jefferson Township, OH. Reports indicate she was strangled to death.  

A re-examination uncovered DNA evidence that led investigators to Swint. Click here to read a press release from Montgomery County, OH. 

Investigators say before living in Alabama, Swint was a police officer in Trotwood, OH, but was fired for disciplinary reasons. For the past few years, Swint was working as a security officer in Phenix City.
