In less than 24 hours, 2 deadly domestic-related shootings in Henry County

Two domestic-related shootings over the weekend in Henry County left two people dead, one man in critical condition and a woman in jail, authorities said.

The first took place Saturday a little after 5:15 p.m., Henry County police Capt. Joey Smith told

Gina Michell Spencer, 35, is accused of fatally shooting her husband, Austin Wayne Spencer, 32, at their home in the 1000 block of Setter Trace in Hampton, Smith said.

Spencer faces two counts of voluntary manslaughter and two counts of aggravated assault, according to jail records. She remains in the Henry County Jail without bond.

On Sunday around 12:30 p.m., police responded to a shooting in the 400 block of Gresham Drive in Stockbridge, Smith said. 

A man was found in the front yard with gunshot wounds, and a woman who had also been shot was found inside the home, Smith said. Police believe children were present in the home, and that this is a domestic-related incident.

Both were taken to area hospitals. The woman, Shayna Lenise Tolbert, later died from her injuries, Smith said. The man, who has not been identified, remains in critical condition. Their relationship was not released.

Police are working to determine if the man will face charges once he recovers, Smith said.
