A Georgia woman was arrested Monday by the S.C. Law Enforcement Division in connection with the October shooting death of her husband in Bamberg.
Annie McNair, 70, was charged with murder and booked at the Bamberg County Detention Center, according to SLED public information liaison Thom Berry.
McNair is accused of shooting her husband, Frank McNair, in the chest on Oct. 1 at his residence on Spring Branch Road in Bamberg, according to the arrest warrant, adding Frank McNair died from the gunshot wounds.
According to published reports, the 69-year-old Frank McNair was a minister in Bamberg County, and when his body was discovered, a woman was also found with gunshot wounds and was airlifted to an area hospital for treatment.
A conviction from a murder charge could result in the death penalty for the Garden City, Ga. resident, or a minimum of 30 years to life sentence in prison, said Berry, adding SLED and the Bamberg County Sheriff’s Department investigated the case.
