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.
