Grandview man charged with murder

From Local Sources

GRANDVIEW — A man has been formally charged with murder after an incident Wednesday afternoon at a home in Grandview.

Police launched a death investigation after a 12:56 p.m. CT call Wednesday to the Spencer County 911 Dispatch Center reporting shots fired during an ongoing domestic dispute at 6280 N. Highland Road, Grandview.

Linda F. Bowman, 64, was found deceased at the scene and 52-year-old Alan L. Bennett was found injured.

Investigators determined that Bowman and Bennett had been living together. Police also say an autopsy Thursday conducted by Spencer County Coroner Rachel Gentry confirmed Bowman’s death was the result of a single gunshot wound to the head.

Authorities have noted the incident is contained, there is no public safety concern and more information on the ongoing investigation will be made public in the coming days.

Bennett is currently in Indiana State Police custody at an undisclosed hospital for a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, that investigators believe occurred on the date of the murder. Bennett will immediately be transferred to the Spencer County Jail following his release from the hospital.
