A Hartselle woman accused of fatally shooting a man at her residence in the Flint community Friday had an initial hearing Monday afternoon.

Mary Evelyn Hamm, 59, of 93 Sage Private Drive, Hartselle, is charged with murder in the shooting death of Bruce Everett Cox. According to court records, Cox was 54 and a resident of Decatur.

Morgan County sheriff’s spokesman Mike Swafford said Hamm’s initial hearing with a Morgan County judge was done virtually from the jail’s video arraignment room.

Decatur police spokeswoman Emily Long called Friday’s fatal shooting “domestic related.”

Morgan County Coroner Jeff Chunn said Cox died at Decatur Morgan Hospital after a single gunshot wound. Cox was pronounced dead at 6:49 p.m. Friday.

Hamm remains in the county jail with bail set at $100,000, Swafford said.

The case is Morgan County’s 21st homicide of the year.
