Macon Man Charged in Girlfriend's Shooting

WSAV in Savannah reports that a man has been arrested in the shooting death of a Macon woman.

The 65-year-old estranged boyfriend of a woman found dead inside her home nine months ago has been charged in her fatal shooting.

The Crawford County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that Jerry Odell Hicks is charged with murder in the death of Kaye Molton Elkins. He also faces several firearms charges linked with the 61-year-old's killing.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Craig Rotter said the two had a tumultuous relationship with a history of domestic violence.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Elkins family.
