Marcus Smith, 37, is accused of killing his mother, 60-year-old Janice Peaks, his stepfather, 63-year-old Donnell Peaks, and a cousin, 38-year-old Cameron King, at Smith’s home on Gardner Street. Investigators believe the shooting resulted from a domestic dispute, according to Cobb police.
Authorities were called to the home off Factory Shoals Road about 12:30 p.m. and found the victims with gunshot wounds, police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk said. Donnell and Janice Peaks were pronounced dead at the scene, and King died shortly after arriving at Grady Memorial Hospital.
