An 81-year-old Macon man was indicted Tuesday on murder charges in the August death of a 38-year-old woman on Case Street.
Willie Lee Willis is charged with murder and felony murder, according to Bibb County Superior Court records.
Willis is alleged to have shot Sharon Burnes, a woman who lived with him, in their frontyard. His granddaughter told reporters that Willis used to date Burnes’ mother and was “like a father” to her.
He is being held at the Bibb County jail without bond, according to jail records.
