Body of Female Found in Newton County

COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Newton County are conducting an inquiry after the body of a woman was found in a house Saturday night.

Police ruled the death as suspicious.

A spokesman with the sheriff's department said neighbors found the woman after she failed to show up for work. The woman's name was withheld.

Authorities said the woman's children were not in the house, but were later found with a relative.

Investigators consider the woman's husband a "person of interest," but no charges were filed.
