Suicide report leads to murder charges in Catoosa County

RINGGOLD, Georgia (WDEF) Catoosa county detectives have charged a Ringgold man with murdering his fiancee.

It happened Friday night at some property on Taylors Ridge Road.

Brian Colby Davenport originally told officers that Debra Abney had committed suicide with his gun.

He says earlier that day, the couple was in court where DFCS took their children into foster care.

Davenport says they got some sandwiches and alcohol and went to the property to talk about it.

He says when he went to his trunk to change shirts, she shot herself.

But investigators say the story didn’t fit the crime scene.

They have charged Davenport with murder, tampering with evidence and giving false statements.
