Roxalene Pullen, who is being held without bond, also was indicted on charges of first-degree murder in the perpetration of felony theft, and theft of the victim’s property, including a vehicle, handgun and cell phone.
A codefendant, Derwin Brown, 53, was indicted on charges of accessory after the fact, and two counts of tampering with evidence by allegedly disposing of the stolen items and arranging the burning of the victim’s GMC Yukon.
On Aug. 26, 2016, investigators with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office were called to a residence in the 6800 block of Mikayla Lane where they found 33-year-old Thomas Regenold Jr. dead of gunshot wounds to the head and neck.
Detectives developed Pullen as a suspect, and in April of 2017 she was arrested and gave a statement regarding her involvement in the incident.
The case is being handled by Asst. Dist. Atty. Marianne Bell of the DA’s Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit (DVPU) which prosecutes felony cases of domestic assault and homicide committed by intimate partners.
The Unit also works closely with the Shelby County Family Safety Center to provide services and assistance to victims and their families.
