Ga. man charged in death of newlywed wife

MACON, Ga. — A middle Georgia man who was charged in the shooting death of his newlywed wife was scheduled to appear in court Friday.

The Telegraph of Macon ( ) reports 45-year-old Marcus Hoskins had been married to 37-year-old Danielle Hoskins for 19 days when he allegedly shot her four times in the torso.

Police say the shooting occurred Wednesday after the couple visited their daughter who was recovering from surgery in a metro Atlanta hospital. Sheriff’s officials say Hoskins called them after the shooting and led authorities to her body.

Police say the shooting may have stemmed from a disagreement over the woman’s ex-husband.

It is unclear if Hoskins has a lawyer.
