Son arrested in connection with nursing home death

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Detectives with the Coffee County Sheriff's Department assisted by an Agent with the Douglas GBI office arrested James Coy Jacobs on Monday. 

Jacobs was charged with Financial Transaction Card Fraud in connection with the case in Nicholls at Rosewood Manor, where the body of Alexander McKay Hunter was found buried in a shed in August of 2014. 

Detectives obtained another warrant Tuesday for James Coy Jacobs for Concealing the Death of Alexander McKay Hunter. Jacobs made his first appearance before the magistrate judge the same day. 

Jacobs' mother Diana Malphus Jacobs and father James Robert Jacobs, had previously been arrested for Concealing the Death of Alexander McKay Hunter, and Financial Transaction Card Fraud. 

James Robert Jacobs appeared before the Superior Court Judge in September and his bond was denied. Diana Malphus Jacobs who had her bond hearing continued after her attorney became ill last year appeared again for bond on January 26, 2015. and it was denied.

Jacobs was out on bond for a previous charge of Theft by Taking, so due to that previous charge and his current charges his bond was denied. Jacobs is being held in another facility at this time.

The investigation continues and more arrest and charges are expected.
