A 31-year-old Georgia woman and her 3-year-old son were found shot to death Monday. The Fannin County Sheriff’s office has arrested the woman’s boyfriend and charged him with murder.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was asked by the Fannin County Sheriff to assist in the investigation of a double murder March 4 at an Underwood Road apartment complex in Morganton.
According to officials, the initial investigation revealed that Fannin County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call of shots fired at the Underwood Road address. Upon arrival, deputies discovered Amber Jackson and her son, Ethan Jackson dead on the front steps of the residence from apparent gunshot wounds.
Jackson’s boyfriend, Joshua Lee Fults, was on the porch of the residence suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Deputies arrested Fults at the scene and he was transported to a medical facility where he remains in critical condition. At this time, an arrest warrant charging Fults with the murder of Amber Jackson has been taken by the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office. Additional charges are expected.
Once completed, the case will be provided to the Appalachian Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
