The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office has charged 90-year-old William Martin of Moore in the death of his wife this morning at their home. Martin assaulted 85-year-old Jeanette Martin using a hatchet. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she died from her injuries.
“It turned out from an argument about something very simple to a death investigation,” says Sheriff Chuck Wright.
Martin has been charged with one count of murder. He’s currently being held in the Spartanburg county detention center
