Tifton -- A Tift County man who shot himself in the head after killing his ex-wife has now died.
Seventy-four-year-old James Curtis Shepherd died Friday at Thomasville's Archbold Memorial Hospital.
Shepherd shot 65-year old Margie Richie in the head Thursday morning before turning the gun on himself.
The Sheriff's office had been called to the home Wednesday night because Richie's family suspected Shepherd put gasoline in bottles of tequila and wine.
Deputies tried to find Shepherd Wednesday night, but he disappeared into a wooded area behind the home. He came back hours later and shot Richie and himself.
