Ex-school bus driver faces capital murder in woman’s death

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – A former school bus driver from Alabama is awaiting extradition from Tennessee on capital murder and other charges in the shooting death of a 72-year-old woman whose car police say he stole.

Huntsville police say 27-year-old Warren Hardy kidnapped his ex-girlfriend’s daughter and stepfather Friday, forcing them to drive to a home to try to find her.

Officers believe Hardy forced his ex-girlfriend into the car, but her family drove away before he could get back in the car.

Police say Hardy spotted Kathleen Lundy coming out of her house, demanded her keys and shot her to death before driving away in her car.

He was arrested in Marion County, Tennessee.

Durham Schools Services spokeswoman Molly Hart says Hardy was on leave when the incident occurred. The company contracts with Huntsville City Schools.
