Adel man found guilty of murder

February 6, 2003

Homerville - A South Georgia man was found guilty of murdering his wife. Sixty-year-old Carlos Wilcox of Adel apparently burned his wife, Anna Jean Wilcox, to death in a car in October of 2001.

Wilcox admitted to setting the car on fire, but told police his wife died of natural causes and wanted to be cremated. Investigators say they don't know if Mrs. Wilcox was conscious or not when the car was set on fire, but do know she was alive.

A Clinch County jury found Wilcox guilty of several charges, including kidnapping, murder, first degree arson, and concealing the death of another. He is being held in the Clinch County jail and will be sentenced next Monday.
