Murder-Suicide Reported in Wayne County

Officials say a family argument preceded a shooting that took the lives of two cousins in Wayne County.

Investigators say 48-year-old Sonja J. Davis was shot and killed by her cousin, 52-year-old Angela James.

The shooting happened just before noon Apr. 18 at Davis' residence north of Waynesboro. Authorities say James then took her own life.

Less than a week ago, deputies say James had moved into the house with Davis. An argument between the two led to the incident.
