BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Nearly three years after a “love triangle gone bad” resulted in the death of a woman, a former detective with the Birmingham Police Department has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Alfreda Fluker, 42, received the life sentence without parole after being convicted of capital murder back in November. She was also sentenced to life for attempted murder. Both sentences will be served consecutively.

Fluker, an off-duty detective who had been with the BPD for 15 years, was arrested after Kanisha Necole Fuller, 43, was found shot outside a home on Pearson Avenue on April 10, 2020. Fuller was found in an unmarked police car with an off-duty detective who was not injured in the shooting.

Fuller died later that night.

In an exclusive interview with CBS 42, Fuller’s mother Janice Andrews says she is pleased with the hearing’s result.

“I feel God is good all the time,” Andrews said. “No matter what your title is you just can’t go around killing people. People got family.”

Andrews also laments that losing a loved one to murder is a tragedy no one should have to go through.

“It feels like I’ve been handed a script in a play. They said here, just take this. This is your life from now on and you have to deal with it,” Andrews said. “It’s not fair, it’s not fair.”

Police report that the love triangle had been going on for quite some time and that the motive for the shooting was domestic in nature.
