A woman was shot and killed during a domestic dispute in Linden in Marengo County Wednesday night.

According to Linden Police Chief Scott McClure, Joyce Houston, 48, was shot in front of the Marengo County Jail while trying to get to safety just before 11 p.m.

Police have arrested Eddie White in the case and say he and Houston were in a relationship.

McClure says Houston was a passenger in a vehicle and another man was driving. White was in a vehicle behind them. Once Houston and the unidentified man stopped at the jail, White stopped next to them and got into a confrontation with the man.

White then went to his vehicle, got a shotgun and the other man ran, according to police. White then allegedly reached into the car, pulled Houston partially out and shot her.

White fled the scene and was arrested at his home on Dill Road in Marengo County.
