Evansville police are investigating a murder early Tuesday morning.
50-year-old Richard D. Guill Jr. is charged with murder in the case. Family members tell Newswatch the victim is Guill's ex-wife, 47-year-old Vickie Hayes.
Family members say Hayes and Guill still lived together in an apartment on Garfield Street in the near downtown area. Family friend Maria Tate says she was not aware of any domestic violence incidents. "This is the first time any violence has ever happened. Vickie's never said anything to me about it. You know, we talked from time to time, but he's never hit her."
Hayes' daughter, Dawn Tauiliili, says, "When I got in there, I went right in there and she was laying on the ground, and she wasn't breathin'. She was partially covered with a blanket, and she had a big bruise on her face."
