Thomas County Man Murders Wife

A Thomas County Georgia man is in jail for the murder of his wife.

Investigators say Buck McMullen and his wife, Tuwanna McMullen were arguing at their home on Rebecca Street when she was shot in the head.

The call came in around 12:30 from Buck McMullen himself saying he had just shot his wife, 43-year-old Tuwanna McMullen.

"Actually one of our investigators got the call on his cell phone," said Investigator Pascal Autry with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office.

The call came in on his cell phone. Deputies quickly arrived at 32 Rebecca Street and say Buck McMullen came to the door with a gun in his hands.

"He let the officers know his wife was inside in the living room," said Autry.

They found the woman dead on a couch with a single gunshot wound to the head.

"He did not elaborate on why he did do it. We believe alcohol was involved," said Investigator Autry.

Our hearts are with the victim's family.
