Son of murdered Bainbridge woman speaks out


A Decatur County man speaks out after his mother was murdered in her home early Saturday morning.

Bainbridge Public Safety officials say Uretha Parks was discovered dead inside her home on Green Street around 7am Saturday.  Officials say she died of blunt force trauma. 

When authorities arrived they immediately suspected foul play and began their investigation.  Later they arrested and charged 39 year-old Michael Davis with murder, burglary and necrophilia.

The victim's son, Roy Byrd, says Davis was temporarily living with his mom before she kicked him out.  Byrd says his mom was a great person.  "My mom was a good lady, she would fed you, take care of you in the house, if you got no place to stay. She would do anything that a good Christian woman would do," said Byrd.

Davis is being held in the Decatur County jail.
