The ex-fiancé of a Navy Chief Petty Officer found murdered in her Florida home was arrested Friday.
Andrea Washington was found dead inside her home back in September. The incident occurred after she filed a domestic violence injunction against her fiance Danny Ray Beard just two weeks before.

At the court filing, Washington said in her petition that Beard threatened her with a gun. She also reported he pushed her to the ground and kicked her in the stomach. She had also filed a separate police report against Beard for aggravated assault.
The day Washington was found dead, Beard appeared in court to defend the domestic violence injunction against him. A court dismissed the temporary restraining order because Washington did not attend.

She was already deceased.
Beard briefly appeared before a judge Saturday morning. He’s being held without bond.
Andrea Washington had just been promoted and pinned by the Navy days before her death. She was a mother to three sons and was from Atlanta, Texas.
Beard’s next court date set for Dec. 31.
