Man accused of killing wife, stepdaughter in triple shooting

By The Associated Press

COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a man killed his wife and stepdaughter in a triple shooting in Georgia.

Covington police said in a statement that 37-year-old Cedric Bernard Cook fired shots at a home after a domestic-related argument escalated Wednesday night.

News outlets report 41-year-old Tijuana Cook and 23-year-old Michelle Olivia Dickerson were found dead inside of the home. The statement says Dickerson's boyfriend, Theodore Betton, was shot in the abdomen and arm outside of the home. His condition hasn't been released.

Police say Cook walked out of the woods beside the home while officers were investigating the scene and said he had been involved in the shooting.

Cook was charged with two counts of felony murder. It's unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.
