Former Alabama officer facing prison commits suicide
Source: WKRG.com – Sources tell News 5, the former Chickasaw Police Officer facing life in prison for raping his young step-daughter has committed suicide.
Bob Ingle was supposed to be sentenced tomorrow.
Ingle’s step-daughter, Rebecca McEvoy was killed in an unrelated car crash one year after she told her best friend about the alleged abuse.
Ingle was arrested in December 2006. He fought to get the charges dropped based on what his attorneys argued was his constitutional right to confront his accuser.
The case faced six delays as the judge and attorneys sorted out what evidence would be allowed.
He was finally convicted last month.
