Valdosta man remains in jail for murder


A Valdosta man remains in the Lowndes County Jail Thursday charged with murdering his girlfriend Wednesday.

He claims the shooting was an accident. Neighbors say it's not the first time their community has been touched by deadly violence.

Inside this Eugene Street house is where 28-year old Ivy Busby was clinging to life Wednesday morning. Police say she was shot in the shoulder and was rushed to the hospital where she died.

Police charged her boyfriend 34-year old William Daniels with murder. He told them he was playing with a revolver and accidentally shot her.

"My son said they were trying to do CPR on her and they cut the lights out on the ambulance and took her away," said Phyllis Herring.

Michael Conway was riding his bike when he came up on the crime scene.

"No one really knows what happened in that house but to me it was just another senseless killing," said Conway.

A murder happened last august right next door to where Wednesday's crime occurred. John Golden died after being shot several times while standing on his porch.

"it's always been a tough area," said Conway.

This community is called the kill me quick community?

"Yes, it has it's reputation for being known as kill me quick," said Conway.

Now a another life is gone and William Daniels is back behind bars.

William Daniels was released from Rutledge State Prison in 2001 after serving time for possession of firearm by a convicted felon in Lowndes County.

He previously was convicted of forgery in Lanier County.
