DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Authorities in Decatur County say a woman found dead inside her home Saturday was murdered.

Decatur deputies initially received a suicide call at 451 Robinson Mitchell Road just after 4:30 Saturday morning.

That is where they found 22-year-old Yetta Parker dead from what appeared to be a single gun shot wound to the chest.

27-year-old Erik Williams who officials believe to be her ex-boyfriend, was at the home at the time of the shooting and reported the incident to 911 as a suicide.

Crime scene investigators said evidence shows otherwise and now believe the death to be murder.

Williams was in police custody for a brief time Saturday but was released.

Two young children were asleep in another bedroom at the time of the shooting.
