JEFFERSON COUNTY - The Jefferson County grand jury has indicted a man for the shooting death of his girlfriend.
The grand jury indicted James Martin Chaney, 44, on a charge of murder.
Investigators say he has confessed to killing Tina Aubey, 42, on May 23 at his home in Hamshire. Investigators say the couple's twin 2-year-old son and daughter were at his home in Hamshire at the time of the shooting.
Justice of the Peace Ray Chesson told KFDM News Aubey was shot several times with a small caliber handgun. He said she was shot in one room and died on the kitchen floor.
According to investigators, Chaney is accused of shooting and killing Aubey at about 10:45 a.m. Thursday, May 23 at his home on Heckaman Loop off Hamshire Road near Highway 124.
A neighbor told KFDM reporter Justin Hinton the suspect walked to his home following the shooting and said, I murdered my wife. Take my children. The neighbor said the children had blood on them but weren't hurt.
The neighbor called 911 and a deputy constable from Precinct 4 responded. The deputy constable spotted Chaney leaving the scene and followed him to a truck stop off Interstate 10 at Hamshire Road, according to investigators. Deputies from the Precinct 4 Constable's office and Sheriff's deputies assisted and took Chaney into custody. The twins were in the car and unhurt.
