A Georgia woman was convicted of killing her fiancé and keeping his body at her home for two months before authorities realized he had passed away.
According to court records obtained by WSB-TV, Tabitha Zelida Wood, 46, was found guilty on Friday by a Hall County jury of killing and covering up the death of her fiancé last year.
According to officials, Leroy Franklin Kramer Jr., age 82, was found dead after his stepdaughter reported in June that she was worried for his safety after not hearing from him for a while.
Kramer’s corpse was found when Hall County Sheriff’s deputies got to his house. He passed away in early April, according to Wood, who informed the deputies that she had been living in the same house with his corpse ever since.
Kramer was killed, according to an autopsy performed by the sheriff’s office. According to WSB-TV, the sheriff’s office stated that his preliminary cause of death was blunt and sharp force trauma.
In addition to being convicted guilty of financial transaction card theft, Wood was also found guilty of two charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, taking advantage of an aged person, and murder with malice.
