Clyretha Broadhead

Detectives with the Mobile Police Department were called to a home Sunday, September 28 after a man was found dead.

Investigators said the man's body was discovered around 5 a.m. in a home on Glenn Avenue at Emogene Street.

Following an autopsy, the victim's death was ruled a homicide.

The victim has been identified as 55-year-old Antonio Grayson. Police say through the course of their investigation, it was determined that the victim's wife, 59-year-old Clyretha Broadhead was responsible for his death. She has been charged with murder.

According to Metro Jail records -- Antonio Grayson -- has a long wrap sheet dating back to 1984. Since 2001 he has been arrested 15 times for domestic violence.

His most recent arrest in July. The year before -- also in July 2018 -- another charge. Court records go into more detail. The police report identifying Clyretha Broadhead as the victim in the case. The report goes on to say Grayson assaulted her -- by trying to strangle or suffocate her -- grabbing her by the throat, choking her until she had difficulty breathing, almost losing consciousness.

Another court document filed in August -- shows prosecutors planned on trying him as an habitual offender.

Meanwhile, neighbors say Broadhead hadn't lived on Glenn Avenue long and say they remember when police showed up back in September and are surprised by the latest turn of events.

Broadhead could have a bond hearing as early as Thursday.
