Murder Suspect Surrenders

An accused killer who staged his suicide before turning himself in to authorities goes to court Tuesday.

Twenty-nine-year-old Johnny Romarice Thomas surrendered himself to the Henry County Sheriff's Department Saturday night.

Thomas had been on the run for almost two weeks.

Last week police found a shotgun, the suspect's wallet and a suicide note on the Chattahoochee Bridge in Columbia.

Thomas allegedly broke into his estranged wife's home with a shotgun April 11.

He's accused of killing 53-year-old Larry Corbitt of Pinkard, and wounding his mother-in-law and 12-year-old stepson.

Thomas faces one count of capital murder and two counts of attempted murder.

He's scheduled to be in court Tuesday.

Investigators are still trying to determine if anyone will be arrested for aiding and abetting Thomas while he was on the run.
