Gwinnett Man Arrested in Roomate's Violent Death


Gwinnett County police have arrested a man suspected of beating a woman to death in their apartment off of Power Avenue in Buford.

Investigators went to a home in the 300 block of Power Avenue for a welfare check on Wednesday afternoon and found Vickie Bowles, 54, dead on the floor of her apartment.

“There were obvious signs of violence in the apartment and blunt force trauma about her body,” said Cpl. Edwin Ritter with the Gwinnett County Police Department.

Thursday morning, police confirmed they had arrested Dennis Puckett and charged him with murder and aggravated assault in Bowles' death. Police said Puckett and Bowles both lived in the apartment where the body was found.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bowles family.
