McIntosh charged with capital murder

MOUNTAIN BROOK, Ala. (WBRC) - UPDATE: The Jefferson County District Attorney’s office has issued a warrant against 45-year-old Jason Bragg McIntosh for capital murder. This comes days after the body of Megan Louise Montgomery was found in the parking lot of the Mountain Brook Athletic Complex.

Mountain Brook Police Chief Ted Cook said in a news conference Wednesday Montgomery was shot at least once in the back and at least once in the head.

He also said video evidence indicates McIntosh and Montgomery left the Courtyard 280 restaurant Saturday night and went almost straight to the area where her body was found.

McIntosh will be transferred to the Jefferson County Jail and held without bond.

Authorities say the investigation remains active.

A homicide victim in Mountain Brook has been identified as the wife of a former Hoover police officer.

The body of 31-year-old Megan Louise Montgomery from Hoover was found Sunday in the parking lot of the Mountain Brook Athletic Complex.

Montgomery’s estranged husband, 44-year-old Jason McIntosh, turned himself in around noon Monday.

“I surrendered Jason McIntosh to the Mountain Brook Police Department immediately upon learning they were looking for him," his attorney Tommy Spina said.

McIntosh will be held in the Mountain Brook Jail until warrants are obtained from the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.

McIntosh was arrested earlier this year following a report of a domestic altercation.

Police say McIntosh was charged with domestic violence after a fight with Montgomery. Court records show Montgomery and McIntosh were married then. She sustained injuries in that incident, but refused medical attention.

McIntosh was also involved in a domestic incident where Montgomery sustained a gunshot wound back on Feb. 23., according to divorce records.

Police say McIntosh resigned from the Hoover Police Department on March 20.
