Auburn man dies in Columbus after domestic incident

An Auburn man died at The Medical Center Sunday from injuries he received days earlier.

Melvin Grady, 38, was found unconscious Tuesday at a Byrd Street home in Auburn when police responded to a call to check on him. Grady was taken to the East Alabama Medical Center and then to the Columbus hospital, where he died, said Auburn Police Capt. Tom Stouffer.

Deaudry Butler, 44, of Auburn was charged with first-degree domestic violence and is in the Lee County Jail.

Stouffer said the case will be presented to a grand jury and more charges could be levied.
