Georgia man charged with wife’s murder after reports she died by suicide

A Georgia man who initially reported that his wife had died by suicide has been charged with felony murder after police grew suspicious that he might not be telling the full story.

Troy Newton Scarborough, of Gray, had been in custody since he was arrested in late March on one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

While Scarborough was in custody, police began investigating the death of his wife, Shyanne Schroeder, the Jones County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook.

On March 27, police responded to Scarborough and Schroeder’s home, where they found Schroeder with a gunshot wound to the head.

Scarborough claimed Schroeder’s death was a suicide, but the responding deputies “got the feeling that something wasn’t right about this case,” the post read.

Officials later said they determined that Scarborough had caused Schroeder’s death and charged him.

In addition to a felony murder charge and a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, Scarborough has been charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to the post.

“I would like to thank our investigators and deputies for all their hard work, without which there may have been a huge miscarriage of justice,” said Jones County Sheriff R.N. “Butch” Reece, who also thanked the FBI for its assistance.

Scarborough is being held without bail. Scarborough’s representation could not immediately be reached for comment.
