PIKE CREEK, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Authorities say an off-duty Delaware state trooper used her service weapon to shoot and kill her boyfriend in a domestic incident.
    
Delaware State Police said 43-year-old Maurice Ifill of Owings Mills, Md., was shot Sunday night at a home on Champions Drive in Pike Creek.
    
Authorities said county and state police responding to a 911 call about 11:15 p.m. Sunday found the trooper "severely battered" and Ifill, her boyfriend, shot in the upper torso.
    
Investigators said the trooper, an eight-year veteran of the Delaware State Police, had been involved in a violent physical altercation inside the home and at some point retrieved her service handgun and shot Ifill.
    
The trooper was admitted to Christiana Hospital with serious injuries and was listed in stable condition.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
