Albany Man Kills Wife, Self

An Albany man has killed his wife and himself at their vacation home in Ft. Gaines.

The Clay County Sheriff says 65-year-old Ronald Cox shot and killed his wife, 68-year-old Bobbie Cox around 11:30 Wednesday morning. He then sat in the home with his wife's body until 6 p.m. Wednesday night before taking his own life when he saw neighbors pull in their driveways.

Sheriff Roger Shivers says Cox left a note telling neighbors what he had done on their doors. Sheriff Shivers and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation worked the case. The Sheriff says Ronald Cox was depressed and was dealing with a lot of financial hardships that may have led to the murder suicide.

These are the 9th and 10th lives taken by domestic violence in Georgia just in the month of July. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cox family.
