BAY MINETTE, Ala. (WKRG) The wife of an Mt. Vernon man stabbed to death while on Spring Break in Gulf Shores is now charged with his murder.
A grand jury indicted 38-year-old Destiny Johnston Byrd for the murder of her husband Grover Byrd. She was in court Thursday afternoon where her bond was set at 250 thousand dollars.
Last April, the couple, along with family and friends, had arrived at One Club in Gulf Shores for a weekend vacation. Shortly after arriving, paramedics were called to a medical emergency. Investigators with Gulf Shores Police say 41-year-old Grover Byrd had been stabbed once in the abdomen. He died on the scene.
The case was turned over to a grand jury who returned a murder indictment against Byrd’s wife of 15 years.
She is currently booked into the Baldwin County Jail. If she is released on bond, she will be required to wear an ankle monitor, be under house arrest, and can’t have any contact with family members.
