Woman indicted on murder charge in boyfriend's death

A grand jury has returned a murder indictment against a Scott County woman for the stabbing death of her boyfriend.

Along with murder, the grand jury also indicted Mindy Hughes Turner on a charge of being a persistent felon.

Georgetown Police found Turner's boyfriend, 26-year-old Maxwell Pomeroy, stabbed to death inside a home on Washington Street on August 9.

Turner is being held in the Scott County Jail on a $100,000 cash bond.

We spoke with Pomeroy's father today, who says his family is breathing a huge sigh of relief now that Turner is charged with the murder.

"It's our hopes that this will bring some closure to them," Georgetown Police Lt. Robert Swanigan said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with them."

Georgetown Police spent the last three months pouring over evidence in the murder.

"There was a tremendous amount of evidence that had to be processed and DNA evidence and evidence of that nature takes a pretty lengthy time to get back from the lab," Swanigan said. "We owed it to the victim and to his family and friends to make sure we did a through investigation."
