An Andersonville man was indicted this month on a charge of second-degree murder in the shotgun shooting death of his girlfriend’s mother in June of 2015.
Initially charged with first-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter and aggravated assault in the June 10th, 2015 death of 66-year-old Karen Zahrobsky, 50-year-old William James McMillan was indicted by the Anderson County grand jury on the second-degree murder charge on March 7th and will be arraigned Friday in Criminal Court.
The shooting occurred early in the morning of June 10th, 2015 at a home on Lone Mountain Road in Andersonville shared by McMillan, Zahrobsky and Zahrobsky’s daughter—McMillan’s girlfriend. When deputies arrived at the scene, Zahrobsky had already died from a shotgun wound to the head.
McMillan told TBI investigators during interviews following the incident that he had intentionally pulled the trigger on the 12-gauge shotgun without provocation and shot the woman.
He was arrested that same night and remained in custody without bond at the Anderson County Jail on the original first-degree murder until March 16th of this year, when he was released on a $100,000 bond on the second-degree murder charge.
