Two people have been charged with murder in the death of Michael Haegele, whose body was found earlier this month in Macon County.
According to a GBI news release, Jason Slaughter, 23, and Donna Slaughter, 30, who live at 23 Palm Drive in Mauk, are charged with murder. The release indicated the pair shared a residence with Haegele.
Haegele was killed May 6 with a single gunshot wound to the head at their Marion County home, and his body was discovered the next day in Macon County, about 30 miles from the crime scene, the release stated.
Jason Slaughter initially called the GBI to say that Haegele hadn’t been heard from since May 1. Haegele had been living with the Slaughters for more than a year.

The Slaughters were being held in the Marion County jail late Monday.
