A WEEK OF CRIME IN BIBB COUNTY
John Berry Hubbard was arrested Wednesday and faces charges of capital murder and kidnapping his ex-girlfriend, Tammy Carpenter.
Carpenter’s sister, Kandi Murphy, was shot and killed by Hubbard after the abduction on Tuesday around 1 p.m. at Tammy’s house.
On Thursday, 56 year old Gene Milner, escaped from the Bibb County Correctional Facility and was recaptured around 10:30 that night.
Authorities say Milner is a repeat offender serving a life sentence for a burglary conviction. One local man knows both the Hubbard and Murphy family. He says Bibb county is home to him and crime like this just doesn’t happen in his area.
