Tifton -- Neighbors are shocked. "I can't imagine how someone can come in and take a life like that in front of their children," said neighbor, Mary Armijo.
The children who's mother, Catedra Jackson, was gunned down early Thursday morning. "At about 12:36 yesterday morning, officers responded to a 911 call. A neighbor called saying they heard what sounded like someone kicking in a door, and then she heard a pop that sounded to her like a gun shot," said Lt. Lee Dunston of the Tifton Police Department.
When police arrived, they say they found the back door kicked in. "They saw a female victim laying in the coach in the living room just inside the door," said Lt. Dunston.
Police arrested 24 year old Courtney Jackson for shooting his wife Catedra. "She always sat out with us and she was a very sweet girl and wonderful mother as far as I am aware off. I knew she was having problems with him, but I am not aware of any of the details," said Armijo.
And now both families are grieving. "Outside of this couple, the families were extremely close knit. The suspects family has cooperated, and they are grieving the loss of what they term to be a member of their family," said Lt. Dunston.
A crime that not only touched and hurt their lives, but the lives of the community as well. Courtney Jackson is being held in the Tift County jail. He is charged with murder, felony murder, burglary and two counts of cruelty to children.
