Suspect in Meriwether County triple shooting arrested

The Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionJuly 21, 2013 

Federal agents arrested a suspect in a kidnapping and triple shooting -- one of them fatal -- early Sunday, just 24 hours after the three victims were found gunned down at a Meriwether County house in central Georgia.

According to the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, Timothy Chambley was captured in Powder Springs, where he had relatives.

Meriwether County Sheriff Chuck Smith said deputies and Woodbury police officers were called to the house on Williamson Circle just after midnight on Saturday morning where they found an elderly woman dead and a man and another woman critically wounded. They learned a 6-year-old had been taken along with the dead woman's 1998 Pontiac Grand Am.

Smith said in a statement the child was soon released unharmed at Chambley's house in Harris County.

Neither the names of the victims nor the motive for the shootings were released.
