Police have charged a Marietta man with felony murder and aggravated assault in the shooting death of his longtime girlfriend Monday night.

Officers were sent to a home in the 200 block of Goldie Drive on a domestic violence call about 7 p.m. and found Felicia Sullivan with two gunshot wounds, Marietta police spokesman Chuck McPhilamy said in a news release. Willie Thompson, 62, “was intoxicated and still inside the residence,” police said.

Sullivan was treated at the scene but died there.

Thompson was arrested and is being held without bond at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.

Authorities said the two were in a long-term relationship, but it wasn’t immediately clear if they both lived in the home.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Marietta police tip line at 770-794-6990
