An Aiken County woman was killed Friday night by her boyfriend in the second of two murder-suicides in the county within a 48 hour period.
Thirty four year old Lacey Toole was shot and killed at a home in the 100 block of Pelzer Street in Warrenville. Her body was found in the front yard of the home when deputies arrived just before 8:00 p.m. She died just before midnight at Augusta University Medical Center.
Investigators say her boyfriend, John Williams, shot himself. He died yesterday at AUMC. The couple has three children. The shooting is believed to have been the result of a domestic incident.
Williams’ mother, Brenda Williams, set up a Go Fund Me account Sunday, asking for $10,000 in donations to help bury her son.
