    He's in BIG trouble either way from the sounds of it. If he lives, he's charged with murder and will go to the pen. If he dies, I'd say chances are, he'll probably not see Heaven........ That is unless he repented and accepted Christ before he pulled the trigger. I highly doubt it though.

    Few days ago the victim sought protection from police. Morgan County has little to no services for battered women
