October 23, 2006

Iron City-  A Seminole County woman was beaten to death Sunday. Investigators charged her husband with the murder.  A neighbor, who is the deputy coroner and a Donalsonville Police investigator heard screams around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and later found 33 year old Bridget Powell dead in his Iron City front yard.

Powell and her husband Mark apparently got into an argument that spilled outside onto the neighbor's lawn. An autopsy Monday revealed Powell died from trauma to the head. Investigators have not yet determined what struck Bridget in the head.

Mark Powell was found in his home and was questioned by police. Monday, Powell was charged with malice murder.
