ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Leesburg man is on trial in Albany for the murder of his wife.

Prosecutors say 46 year old Ronnie Faircloth shot his wife of 27 years to death, and then went to buy beer for an alibi.

42 year Norma Faircloth was found dead at her Nottingham North apartment in September 2007. Prosecutors say she had left her husband and was moving into the apartment.

Fishermen found the murder weapon in Lake Chehaw 13 months later.

Police say Faircloth was drinking beer when they arrived at the murder scene.

His trial is expected to last four days.
