A pastor has been charged, in relation to the suspicious death of his fiancée.
William C. Pounds III has been indicted by a grand jury in Bibb County Georgia in the June death of his fiancée, Kendra Jackson. The death was believed to be suicide at first, until investigations revealed more details of the case.
He has been charged with malice murder, felony murder, and aggravated assault. Although Jackson’s death was initially ruled a suicide by investigators, further evidence has shown that the story Pounds told about Jackson’s death seemed to contradict itself.
The pastor first told officials that he and Jackson had argued about separating and she had held a .40 caliber handgun to her head and pulled the trigger before he could stop her.
Pounds also said she shot herself just once, but police found bullet holes in the walls and mattress.
In addition, Pounds claimed to have tried to perform CPR on Jackson, but emergency responders noted that someone trained in CPR wouldn’t have tried to resuscitate Jackson due to the type of injury she suffered.
