Columbus Police Investigate Yet Another Murder

Columbus Police are investigating the city's 16th murder this year.

For the fifth time in less than two weeks, another murder has been committed.

Investigators say Robert Jones shot and killed his wife Marilyn Cotton early Tuesday morning at their home on Decatur Court.

Relatives tell police the two were married, but Cotton didn't change her name.

Police wouldn't release any details on why Jones shot Cotton.

Robert Jones is in the Muscogee County jail. We're told Marilyn Cotton leaves behind a son.
