The Bibb County Sheriff's Office says they have taken 49-year-old Jessie Gray into custody.

He is wanted for the murder of 58-year-old Macon woman, Brenda Faulkner.

She was found dead in her home at 1776 First Avenue in Macon on Thursday morning. Investigators say Gray also lived in this home.

"We believe that Brenda and Jessie had some sort of domestic relationship and became involved in some type of argument at which point we believe he caused her death," says Sheriff Davis.

Bibb County Chief Coroner, Leon Jones, says Faulkner died from blows to the head and strangulation. Friday afternoon, Sheriff Davis called in members of the US Marshal Service to help find Gray.

"Their main purpose is to serve the warrants and find people that we're looking for, and it frees up the investigators to finish up their work dealing with the witnesses and finishing the investigation," says Davis.

This is the third homicide that Bibb deputies have investigated just this year. Sheriff Davis says he's seeing a trend of domestic homicides across Bibb County.

"It seems to be an issue we're dealing with more and more. Most of the homicides we had last year were domestic-related. It's hard to be in everyone's house to stop such a crime as that, but we are very diligent to find out who did it and bring them to justice," says Davis.

Friday night Gray was "brought to justice" when a team of Bibb deputies, investigators, and US Marshals found him hiding behind a house in the 1100 block of Boulevard.

Gray was taken into custody, and taken in for questioning.

The Bibb County Sheriff's Office also says Gray has a criminal history in Bibb County including family violence and probation violation.
