Tell City, IN – Tell City Police Department Sergeant Heather Glenn was murdered on Monday as she was trying to arrest a domestic violence suspect.

A female victim was at the hospital with injuries she allegedly got during a fight with 34-year-old Sean Hubert.

On Monday morning, the victim told hospital staff that Hubert was headed toward Perry County Memorial Hospital.
Law enforcement officers from multiple departments rushed to the hospital to intercept Hubert on July 3.
