PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (Commonwealth-Journal)– A Tennessee man accused in the murder of a Pulaski County woman could face the death penalty, according to the Commonwealth-Journal.

59-year-old Johnnie Davis was found dead in her home on Good Hope Church Road in Eubank back in November.

Investigators say Davis’ daughter had recently got an emergency protection order against an ex-boyfriend named Brad McMahan.

He’s charged with Davis’ murder and first-degree burglary.

It’s reported that last week, the Commonwealth’s Attorney told the judge that he would be filing a capital notice in the case.

McMahan is scheduled to be back in court on May 17.

He remains in the Pulaski County Detention Center with a $1 million cash bond.
