A Crawford County man now faces murder charges for allegedly shooting his stepbrother.

 

That's according to Sheriff Lewis Walker.

 

He said it happened Tuesday night at a home on Blasingame Road. That's outside of Fort Valley.

 

Walker says the two men argued and 31-year-old Jason Beckham shot his stepbrother in the stomach with a 12-gauge Mossberg model 500 pump shotgun.

 

36-year-old Travis Nigro died on the scene.

 

A magistrate judge yesterday denied bond for Beckham.

 

He's in the Crawford County jail, charged with felony murder and possessing a firearm while committing a crime.

The sheriff's department says it is awaiting autopsy results from the GBI crime lab.
