Wayne County domestic abuse ends in one death

WAYNESBORO, MS (WDAM) - A 37-year-old Wayne County woman is dead tonight after being shot to death by her live in boyfriend.

Wayne County authorities have arrested 41-year-old Christopher Bishop in the Monday night alleged shooting of Carla Gray.

Authorities were alerted to the shooting as a result of a 911 call about 8:30 p.m.

Gray was found in the home she shared with bishop on Toby Landrum road.

She was pronounced dead at Wayne General Hospital.

A search of the house also uncovered other firearms not related to the shooting, and about 15 grams of crystal meth. Because of prior complaints of Domestic Violence involving the couple, deputies have charged Bishop with murder, as well as possession of crystal meth with intent to distribute.

He will make his initial court appearance Wednesday morning in Justice Court.
