ATLANTA (AP) -- The husband accused of shooting his wife eight times outside of their Sandy Springs apartment has returned to Georgia.
Michael Parson was arrested in Texas earlier this month. Police say he will be charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, giving false statement in writing concealing the facts of a felony and marijuana possession.
Adina Parson, an attorney for the state Department of Public Health, is making significant progress after being shot three times in the head on April 20.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Michael Parson was extradited to Georgia on Saturday and booked into Fulton County jail. He was being held Monday afternoon without bond.
Police have not released information regarding a motive in the shooting.

    Men and women, it's time to get on your knees and pray, God ordained marriage, you should love, honour, and protect your spouse not shoot them 8 time.

    What he's not going to face a attempted murder charge ? Being Shot 8 times is more than aggravated assault. He needs to go to prison for a long time. If given the chance he may finish the job.

    I have known Michael for many years. The man I know is not capable of this crime. This is somebody my children look up to and love. He is a wonderful, loving, funny, tender hearted person. I hope the public isn't being influenced too much by the publicity of this case and will wait to base their opinion on the actual facts.
