MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Police Department has charged a woman with murder after the death of an April shooting victim. 

On July 27, Eugene Travis, 43, was pronounced dead at UAB Medical Center from injuries he sustained in an April 14 shooting. He had been receiving treatment at the hospital since the shooting.

On April 17, police arrested Renita Thornton, 32, and charged her with one count of first-degree domestic violence (first-degree assault). The charges were related to the shooting, which happened in the 3700 block of Audubon Road. When police arrived at the scene, they found Travis suffering from a life threatening gunshot wound.

MPD identified Thornton as a suspect at the scene and took her into custody. Investigators say the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute. According to court documents, Thornton intentionally shot the victim, identified as her boyfriend, in the face with a handgun.

Thornton was taken back into custody by the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force and taken to the Montgomery County Detention Facility. She is being held under a $150,000 bond.
