Michael Curry trial begins, accused of killing pregnant wife and kids

By Web Staff – email

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Michael Curry's murder trial will begin Monday. He has been a suspect since the August 1985 murder of his wife and two young children.

His pregnant wife, Ann, their four-year-old daughter, Erika, and their 20-month old son Ryan were murdered with a bush axe almost 26 years ago at their home on Rockhurst Drive.

The district attorney at the time said there was not enough evidence to charge him.

However, when District Attorney Julia Slater came into office and presented the case, Curry was arrested in May 2009.

The trial was originally set for October , but was delayed due to the defense filing several  motions saying things have not been handled correctly.

News Leader 9 will keep you posted this week with the latest developments from the trial.
