COOK CO., GA (WALB) - Officials have released what charges an Adel man is facing after the GBI said he confessed to killing his wife.

Anthony Jerome Williams, 40, is behind bars, facing multiple charges for the murder of his wife, Kimberly Williams.

Jerome’s charges include two counts of murder, concealing a death and aggravated assault.

Law enforcement also released new details explaining that Kimberly’s body was found near Lavind Street in Cook County.
