Ellaville -- The porch light of this Schley County home is still on, cars parked in the drive, and children's toys are on the front lawn.
A small piece of police tape the only evidence of a deadly incident that occurred here just hours before.
Schley County deputies responded to a 911 call at 610 Barwick Road in rural Schley County. It was here where deputies found the body of 31-year-old Chad Masters, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. But the trail of bloodshed didn't end there.
Sheriff Shane Tondee says, "we found the victim, which was the wife of Chad Masters, at her mother's residence which was next door. And she had been shot also."
According to sheriff's reports, 30-year-old Ann Masters walked with her two children to her mothers house. She had been shot in the neck by her husband. All of this just a few days after police say Ann Masters had filed a temporary protective order against him.
This is not the first domestic incident that occurred at the Masters' household. According to police, Chad Masters had attended a hearing yesterday regarding a disorderly conduct charge.
"We had received one call where we had went out there. We actually charged him with disorderly conduct," says Tondee.
According to Sheriff Tondee, domestic violence cases like this appear to be a seasonally growing problem.
He says, "It increases from our standpoint more in the summer time more than it does in the winter time. And it's the summer months, and it's just been increasing lately."
An increase that all too often leads to tragic consequences.
Sheriff Tondee says the victim's injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
