Two people in custody after woman is shot to death in Gordon County

GORDON COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -

The Gordon County Sheriff's Office has two men in custody in connection to a woman's death.

Shortly after midnight Monday, Gordon County sheriff's deputies were called to a residence on Baxter Road in the Dews Pond community after a 35 year-old woman was found shot to death.

In a matter of hours, deputies found "Freddie" Charles in a wooded area. Detectives also have a second person in custody who they are questioning. As of Tuesday morning, Charles was booked into the Gordon County Jail on a charge of theft by taking.

It's unclear if that case is related to the woman's death. His bond had not been set yet. 

When deputies arrived on scene Monday, the woman was unresponsive when they found her. Investigators executed a search warrant at the residence and questioned numerous witnesses.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the case. Authorities have not yet released the name of the victim.
