INCIDENT: Domestic related Murder/Suicide
DATE: March 10, 2013
LOCATION: 1510 Gateview Way


At approximately 1000 hours on Sunday, March 10, 2013, officers responded to 1510 Gateview Way for a report of shots being fired. Upon arrival witnesses told officers they observed the suspect, identified as Henry Harlan Wooten, 70 of Acworth walking away from the residence towards the other end of the subdivision. Officers found Wooten deceased from a self- inflicted gunshot wound in the cul-de-sac of the 1400 block of Gateview Way.

The investigation revealed that Wooten had gone to the residence of Kay Cornell Janus, 72 of Marietta, who resided at 1510 Gateview Way. Wooten and Janus were involved in a long term relationship. Although the motive is still under investigation, it’s apparent that Wooten had shot Janus in the garage of her home and then left the scene on foot.

The case is still under active investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Michael Freer at 770-794-5477
