VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -A domestic dispute turned deadly Christmas Eve in Valdosta. Now a Lowndes County man is in jail charged with murdering the woman he lived with.

Valdosta police found 47-year-old Charlotte Grant suffering from severe head injuries in her home near 600 New Hudson Street. Around midnight, paramedics rushed her to South Georgia Medical Center where she died.

Minutes after witnesses had given police a description of the suspect, they found 58-year-old Kenneth Brown and charged him with murder. Investigators say it appears he struck Grant with an object which officers later recovered and believe to be the murder weapon.

He's in the Lowndes County Jail waiting other possible charges. If you know any additional information on the murder, contact Valdosta Police at 229-293-3145.
