After a nine-month-long investigation, Bradley County officials have charged a woman involved in a shooting which occurred at a Keith Valley Road residence. The woman was identified as the victim’s stepdaughter.

Icy Christina Reagan Cope, 35, of a Horton Road address was arrested after a Bradley County grand jury returned a true bill in the case. She is charged with first-degree murder.

John L. Penn, 66, died two weeks after being shot on April 6, 2011.

The shooting was reported to authorities just after 3 a.m. that day. Penn was transported to Erlanger Medical Center where he died April 22, 2011.

According to Bob Gault, media relations coordinator for the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, investigators learned the shooting stemmed from an alleged domestic situation.

Cope is being held at the Bradley County Jail under $150,000 bond.
