A couple has been charged in connection with the death of Michael Haegele, whose body was found May 7 in Macon County, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.
Jason Slaughter, 23, and Donna Slaughter, 30, of 23 Palm Drive in Mauk, Ga., face murder charges in Haegele’s death, a release states.
A GBI investigation revealed that Haegele lived with the Slaughters and that he was killed on May 6. The couple disposed of his body in Macon County, about 30 miles from where they lived with Haegele, authorities said.
Haegele came to live with the Slaughters about a year ago. Jason Slaughter called the GBI on May 12 and told officials he hadn’t seen Haegele since May 1, the release states.
The Slaughters remain in custody at the Marion County Jail.
