A 57-year-old man was taken into custody by Jefferson County Sheriff Deputies Thursday morning and charged with the murder of Carla Fluker Mack, who was found shot dead in her home in Lake View on New Years Day.

The alleged shooting took place in Lake View Wednesday afternoon. Police believe Mack, 49, and Carl Evans Boyd were in a relationship which ended recently. Neighbors reported that Boyd went to Mack's house Wednesday and had some kind of altercation there. After he left, neighbors found Mack suffering from gunshot wounds, which proved fatal shortly after.

Boyd was arrested Thursday in Jefferson County before being transported to the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where his bond was set at $150,000.
