MACON COUNTY -- A body discovery and a Decatur man jailed.
After investigators say he confessed to running over and killing his girlfriend, with his SUV. Tuesday night, investigators found the body of 53-year old Janice Cole at the intersection of pit and sable roads,
in rural Niantic. They say she died from several blunt force injuries over the weekend.
"I will advise you that positive identification was achieved thought the comparison of radiology images that had been taken during the course of treatment prior and compared by the forensic pathologists and his staff." said Michael Day, Macon County Coroner.
Macon county police arrested the victim's boyfriend, 64-year old Eddie Sutters later on Tuesday. Investigators say Sutters told them he punched her early Saturday morning, before driving to the intersection, dragging her out of his SUV and running her over twice.
A motive has not yet been released. Sutters is accused of first-degree murder. He's being held on 5 million dollar bond tonight.
