A Cuthbert man is in jail  charged with beating his ex-girlfriend to death at an Albany Motel.

56-year old Monty Caren Simpson is charged killing 51 year old Beverly Jean Williams.

Her body was found at the Dollar Inn on North Slappey just after 7:30 last night.

Investigators say she died of blunt force trauma to her head.

Williams had a restraining order to keep Simpson away from her.

Albany Police Detective Terrence Whitlock said "Miss Williams and Simpson have had a history of domestic violence. Several months ago he was arrested for assault, and she was the victim."

Investigators say Simpson called 9-1-1 himself to ask for emergency responders at the motel room. He is being held in the Dougherty County Jail. Williams' body has been sent to Macon for autopsy.
