A 31-year-old Army soldier allegedly killed a man he came across with his wife in the couple’s Georgia home this weekend.
Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jermaine Ray Mealy is accused of killing 41-year-old Nathaniel Brown on Saturday afternoon.
Mealy’s wife told him the couple’s Hinesville home was robbed Friday night, and he drove back from Texarkana, Texas, authorities told WJCL.
The burglary took place about 10:45pm that night, according to the television station.
Texarkana, Texas, and the home in Hinesville are separated by more than 900 miles.
WTOC reported Mealy was undergoing military training in Texarkana.
Lt. Susy Jackson, a spokeswoman for the Hinesville Police Department, told the television station ‘She told him not to worry about it, cause police had been here and had worked the case and she would be okay.
‘Well then this morning, she had a friend that came over and then later the husband shows up.’
WTOC reported there was a brawl and gunshots after Mealy saw the man with Mealy’s wife.
The incident took place at approximately 1:15pm, according to the CBS affiliate station.
Chief of Detectives Thomas Cribbs told WTOC that Brown, who suffered chest and stomach gunshot wounds, was taken to a Hinesville hospital and later declared dead there.
