DV Murder in Warner Robins

A Warner Robins man has been charged with murder after a domestic dispute ended with a woman dead.

Warner Robins police spokeswoman Tabitha Pugh says officers went to an apartment on Memorial Terrace just after 11 p.m. Sunday.

They found 61-year-old Rachel Boyd with a wound on the side of her head and 45-year-old Thomas Smith with stab wounds.

Pugh says Boyd and Smith both went to the hospital, where Boyd died a short time later.

She says an autopsy showed that Boyd died from several blunt force traumas to the head that she got during the fight.

Smith has been arrested and charged with felony murder and aggravated battery in Boyd's death.

Anyone with information can call Detective Karen Stokes of the Warner Robins Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at 478-918-2980 or submit information through the Warner Robins police website. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Boyd family.
