Antonio B. Mari
ALSO: Attorney killed by client's husband in murder-suicide, officials say
Mari’s alleged shooter, Walter Samuel Radford, left the scene in his Ford pickup truck and called his wife to tell her about the killing, police said. She then called 911.
Roughly an hour after the shooting, authorities found Radford, 33, of Cartersville, dead at his wife’s home on Willow Bend Drive, Bartow County coroner Joel Guyton told The AJC.
Mari was representing Radfords’s wife, Cindy, in the couple’s divorce proceedings, which were finalized less than two hours before the shooting.
Mari, 41, of Acworth, graduated from the University of Georgia and taught social studies for 10 years at Cass High School in Bartow County. After graduating law school, Mari opened a firm in Cartersville and opened a location in Cobb County in 2012.
