ALBANY, GA (WALB) –
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."
