NORTH AUGUSTA — A 20-year-old woman was arrested and charged with murdering her husband this morning.

Terry, 20, was taken into questioning this morning.  After about five hours of questioning, the North Augusta Department of Public Safety determined that she was the triggerperson and they took her to the Aiken County Jail and charged her with her hubby’s murder.

Ms. Terry is now facing five additional charges: possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and four counts of unlawful conduct towards children.

Deputies with the NADPS found the victim, 21, motionless with a gunshot wound to the head at around 10:28 today.  He was taken across the Savannah to Georgia Regents University Hospital where he died.

Four small children were home when the shooting happened, but none of them were injured. They were turned over to the custody of their grandparents at the scene. The children are ages four months and 1, 3 and 4 years old.

This shooting was the result of a domestic dispute.  This is North Augusta’s second domestic violence murder in less than six months, and metro Augusta’s second domestic violence murder in three days.  In each instance, the victim were men, and the suspects were women.

The fact that Ms. Terry murdered her husband in front of their children is literally beyond revolting.
