THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) – A deadly domestic dispute in Thomasville early Monday. Investigators say a man shot and killed his wife in the first homicide in Thomas County in 18 months. He's in jail charged with murder.
Investigators say Buck McMullen and his wife, Tuwanna McMullen were arguing at their home on Rebecca Street when she was shot in the head. Their friends and family members can't believe it happened.
Yellow tape that surrounded the McMullen's home early Monday morning is gone. But what happened in that home is fresh in neighbor John Richardson's mind.
"It's just a tragic shock, we never dreamed of something like that happening," said John Richardson.
Richardson has been friends with McMullens for nearly 40 years. When he heard the news that Buck McMullen was in jail charged in the murder of his wife he couldn't believe it.
"We're praying for the family," he told WALB News 10.
The call came in around 12:30 from Buck McMullen himself saying he had just shot his wife, 43-year-old Tuwanna McMullen.
"Actually one of our investigators got the call on his cell phone," said Investigator Pascal Autry with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office.
The call came in on his cell phone. Deputies quickly arrived at 32 Rebecca Street and say Buck McMullen came to the door with a gun in his hands.
"He let the officers know his wife was inside in the living room," said Autry.
They found the woman dead on a couch with a single gunshot wound to the head.
"He did not elaborate on why he did do it. We believe alcohol was involved," said Investigator Autry.
Family members we spoke with didn't want to talk on camera but say they're in shock, and just wish they had some answers. Both Buck and Tuwanna McMullen have children from previous marriages. Investigators say Buck McMullen does not have a criminal history. Buck McMullen's will make his first court appearance Tuesday morning.
