LOUISA COUNTY, Va. — The Louisa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating what they believed to be a murder-suicide that involved a newlywed couple. Charles Waldon Wilson, age 51, and his wife Stacey Ann Bowers, age 45, were found Sunday in their home on Wild Turkey Drive. The couple had been married not quite a year.

The Sheriff’s office received a call for help just before 9 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 7. The call was made by a family member who was dropping off her kids.

She had talked to Bowers about 45 minutes earlier, she said. She told the sheriff’s office that everything seemed fine when she asked Bowers to babysit the grandkids.

No one has been able to determine any problems between Wilson and Bowers, according to said Louisa Sheriff’s Major Donnie Lowe.

Both Wilson and Bowers suffered from gunshot wounds and were transported to Medical Examiner’s Office in Richmond.

The investigation is ongoing.
