Tenn. woman caught in Ala., in death of boyfriend

COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) -- A Middle Tennessee woman is held in jail at Huntsville, Ala., in the death of her boyfriend nearly three months ago.

U.S. Marshals arrested 25-year-old Heather Davis on Wednesday after getting a tip she was staying in Madison County, Ala.

The Daily Herald of Columbia, Tenn., reported Davis was held as Tennessee authorities seek to extradite her on a charge of criminally negligent homicide.

Davis was indicted this month by a Maury County grand jury in the death of 28-year-old Jonathan Ryan Vernon, who was pronounced dead at the Columbia home the couple shared. An autopsy found Vernon died of an overdose of prescription pills.
