The Tulsa police officer who shot Terence Crutcher earlier this week has been indicted on charges of manslaughter.

ThinkProgress:

District Attorney Stephen Kunzweiler announced during a Thursday afternoon press conference that Shelby would be charged with 1st degree manslaughter, and that a warrant has been issued for her arrest.

Shelby apparently has a history of domestic disturbances in her past, too.

Shelby has divorced and been re-married at least once. According to the job application she submitted to the sheriff’s office in 2007, the new wife of Shelby’s ex-husband noted that she filed a protective order against her in 2002 to help put an end to harassing phone calls she claims Shelby made to her. The order was eventually denied and Shelby maintained her innocence.

Nearly a decade earlier, Shelby also noted on the same application that she experienced a breakup in 1993 with her then-boyfriend. She said the split led to the two damaging each others cars and that temporary restraining orders were filed, which were eventually tossed out.
