A 29-year-old LaFayette man killed his live-in girlfriend Sunday evening, Jan. 15, Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Monday.
David Ryan Walker has been charged with the murder of 29-year-old Candace Ann Hankins. The couple lived at 956 Wheeler Road, Wilson said.
This is the first murder in Walker County in 2017, Wilson said.
Officials believe Hankins was pregnant, but that will have to be confirmed by an autopsy, Wilson said.
