BACONTON, GA (WALB) - A woman whose murder triggered a long standoff in Camilla was laid to rest today.

Willie Mae Wallace's funeral was held at a Baconton Church this afternoon.

Authorities say her husband, 49-year-old Fredrick Murray, shot and killed her last week while Wallace was home packing a bag to leave.

Murray eventually surrendered to a Georgia State Patrol swat team after a 6 hour standoff outside of the home. Murray is now charged with murder.
