OZARK, Ala. (AP) -- A female state trooper was shot to death last night by her ex-husband, who then shot himself. Authorities said it happened around 8 p.m. at a residence on Highway 123 in Ozark.

Trooper spokesman Tracy Nelson declined to release the trooper's name, but said she was recently transferred to the Dothan post and had been a trooper since 2005.

Nelson said the former husband, whose name was also withheld, is listed in critical condition at Dale Medical Center.

Ozark police, the Dale County Sheriff and the Alabama Bureau of Investigation are investigating the case.
