Wolford Indicted in Poppell Murder

| August 6, 2015


THOMASVILLE — A Thomas County Grand Jury has indicted Jamey Wolford in the murder of James Eric Poppell.

Deputies found Poppell, 31, shot to death at the Azalea Trailer Park, on North Pinetree Blvd. in Thomasville last April.

Wolford, 33, said he had an argument with Poppell on the front steps of a residence.  He then stated that Poppell charged him, at which time Wolford said he shot Poppell with a .40 caliber handgun.  Poppell was unarmed.

The Grand Jury returned True Bill of Indictments against Wolford for Felony Murder, Aggravated Assault, and Voluntary Manslaughter.

Bench Warrants were issued for his arrest.  Wolford turned himself into authorities on Wednesday and is being held at the Thomas County Jail.

The court denied bond for Wolford.
