Domestic incident leaves one dead in Marbury

By JOYANNA LOVE/ Managing Editor

The Chilton County Sheriff’s Office responded to a homicide on Sept. 5 at around 3 p.m. in Marbury.

Sheriff John Shearon said the department responded to a shooting on County Road 534. The person who had been shot died at the scene.

He described the case as a domestic incident in which the shot fired was likely in self-defense.

Because of the nature of the case, names are not being released by CCSO at this time.

Shearon said the case will be a direct present to the Grand Jury when it meets in January.
