Wife accused of murdering husband makes first appearance

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County woman accused of killing her husband last year made her first appearance in court Wednesday morning.

Susan Embert is charged with felony murder and malice murder. She has acquired an attorney.

Susan Embert is charged with killing her husband Jake in June 2014. A Grand Jury said she shot her husband and staged the crime to look like a suicide.

Jake Embert, a 53-year-old Army veteran and 20-year employee at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany died on June 28, 2014 from a gunshot wound.

The Embert family, never believing Jake committed suicide, hired a private detective to investigate his death.

His investigation concluded that Susan staged the murder to look like suicide.

Susan Embert was arrested in Florida and transferred to Dougherty County Jail on Tuesday.
