TIFT COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A Tift County woman learned Thursday that she will spend the rest of her life in prison for stabbing a man to death two years ago.

A jury found Carol Sue Hornbuckle guilty of malice murder. Deputies arrested Hornbuckle in August 2007 for fatally stabbing her boyfriend, 41-year-old Chuck Raburn, at his home on Highway 125 in Tift County.

Raburn, who left behind two young daughters, and Hornbuckle were living together at the time of his murder. Authorities said the couple had a prior history of domestic violence.
