A Geneva County man and his girlfriend are behind bars charged with murder. Authorities believe Timothy Wilkerson was killed in cold blood outside a Samson Church.

Blood stains remain evident at the intersection of Jordan and Aplin Streets where the killing took place, just a few yards from the First Assembly of God Church in Samson.

Authorities say 52-year-old Timothy Wilkerson was gunned down by his ex-wife's current boyfriend, Glen Lee. The ex-wife, Theresa Wilkerson, is also charged with murder since she was also armed and driving the vehicle that stopped by Mr. Wilkerson, moments before he was killed.

Linda Peavey was attending a church service when the congregation heard the single gunshot. "When I came out of the church, heard the loud shot, I could see a man falling out of the pick-up truck, and another man standing holding a gun. I went back into the church, I was scared."

In the quiet Samson neighborhood, the victim was well known and liked. It comes as a great shock.

Kathy Thompson, the victim’s friend says, "Oh he was a great guy; calm person, always looking to help someone."

Geneva County Sheriff Greg Ward describes domestic violence as an epidemic, and this is just another example of how terribly things can go wrong. "The victim came out of the truck and made the statement if you pulled that gun, you better use it and that's when he fired."

Both Lee and Theresa Wilkerson are behind bars at the Geneva County Jail on open counts of murder.

In Samson at this time, authorities are awaiting autopsy results on Mr. Wilkerson from the Department of Forensics in Montgomery.

    both(glen and ann) of the people arrested and charged for MURDER....and in cold blood of an unarmed man were allowed to bond out of jail before the family could even bury the victim (Tim). They should have not been able to bond out for any amount of money! God Bless the families that were hurt by this tragedy. Please keep us all informed of the outcome of this case......

    I pray that God will put His loving arms around the Wilkerson family and hold them all threw this awful event. I pray that justice will be served and before Mr. Lee, and Mrs. Ann meets the Lord that they repent and get things straight with the Lord. To the Wilkerson family you all are in my prayers.

    My regrets go out to the family May God Bless you all. No matter how many complaints were reported, Lee and Theresa should have let the law handle the matter,not just cold blood kill someone, and that is the way it appears.

    I am a friend of Mr. Glen Lee and some of my information says that Mr. Lee actually filed police report after police report on Mr. Wilkerson for threatning the couple. I know Mr. Lee would never kill a man in cold blood for no reason what so ever. I grew up around Mr. Lee and still consider him a good friend of mine, I know that this predicament will get worked out.
