Georgia Man Kills Wife - Says It was an Accident - No Charges

Local news reports

According to police records, Steven Thomas told Suwanee Police dispatch in the early morning hours of the shooting. Officers responded to the call about 3 a.m., and Steven Thomas soon surrendered without incident. He was taken into detention and later released.

Charissa Thomas' body was found at the top of the staircase. A gun was positioned between her legs, and a cell phone was next to her body. There was a "large amount of blood" on her head, face and body, the incident report said

There was blood leading away from her body, through the master bedroom and into the master bathroom. There was blood in the sink, and water was still running.

Police also said a rag and cleaning agent were found on the floor just outside the bathroom. In the master bedroom, a bedside stand had been moved away from a wall irregularly, the police report said.
I suppose this all means if it turns out to have been "just an accident," there's no problem.

What do you think?  Please leave a comment.

  1. When you have a dead body, it's always either an accident or an attack by the dead body. For the NRA, dead men or women tell no tales.

    1. There are 100,000,000 gun owners in this country, and 4,000,000 NRA members. I'll leave you to calculate the percentage.

  2. Why do you consistently leave out the part about how the police are still investigating? All the moving around and cleaning agent bits tell me that there's more to the story, as does the location of the gun. Give the police time to do their jobs.

    1. The police have done the investigation and no charges b/c they did as much as they could and have nothing to charge a very greiving husband with a life like no other of 25 years with her. Accidents to happen to all of us.

    2. Negligence with guns always involves breaking safety rules. You can call them accidents, but they're really gross negligence.

  3. Any idea why there is so little news on this? A woman shot at 3am by her husband in an affluent neighborhood with cleaning agents nearby and not following police instructions to go outside is kind of a big deal.

    1. It could be because gun "accidents" are so commonplace that they aren't really news, and after all it was only a woman who was killed, you know, second class citizen and all.

    2. He followed instructions and came outside with no incident. Read the article instead of jumping to what is covenant.

    3. I am not buying the accidental shooting either. Seems that the people of Suwanee have forgiven and forgotten based on the lack of reporting on this. You dont shoot your wife in the head by accident, especially at 3am. Just doesnt add up.

    4. We all know accidents happen, but seriously people ? how does a loving husband his wife...in the head, kill her, at 03:00am in the morning, by accident ?? was she dressed as a burglar maybe ? in disguise ? Further, and even more questionable, is the fact that the gun was found between her legs, cleaning agents and rags found, in attempt to cover something up, possibly conceal a crime, and blood leading to sink in bathroom, coagulated blood on floor, furniture moved in unusual manner, etc etc. We dont buy this story at all. It stinks like last weeks trash ! ! Lets home the authorities in GA have their act together and forensics testing will disprove Mr Thomas' story here. Be patient, testing & analysis takes time. Lets hope justice prevails in Suwanee Ga.

    5. Think about it..... Furniture moved out for the wall quickly... You wake up thinking of someone breaking into your house and you have a gun in the dresser. You would rip the drawer open therefore be moved from the wall. She went to walk the dog and thought she was an intruder. It was so dark and he shot and did not think. Of course with blood on him he went to bathroom to clean off and wash hands. This has been investigated for almost 8 months and all checks out exactly as said. The police chief even said of Suwanee.

  5. Why would the gun, fired by the husband, be found between this poor womans legs ? ? Blood takes time to coagulate also. How much time went by between the time the shooting occured and the when police were notified. Seems to me it would take some valuable time to dig out the cleaning agents, clean up the scene a bit and possibly move the body around before calling for the police and ambulance to possibly help save his wifes life. Ive been a Law enforcement officer 26 yrs and this story just doesnt add up. I would love to talk to the first officers to arrive at this scene and hear what they have to say. Lets hope the authorities piece together what really happened in this case, accident or not. Northern Lawman .........

    1. Lisa T,
      Reading the book you mention above, The Sociopath Next Door" does not qualify you to diagnose someone as a sociopath. However, since you mention he traded her in for a younger model and had made it clear to his coworkers her role in life was to look good for him......you must have known them or worked with him? You owe it her family and friends to do the following immediately!

      (1) Notify her relatives & authorities of what happened.

      Do not be vague. Name names, and specify dates and circumstances. Identify witnesses if possible and provide supporting documentation if any is available.

      (2) Inform the police. The police will keep the information on file, and investigate it since a crime was committed. Nevertheless, if you have information place the information in their hands.

      Otherwise, please refrain from judging others, if you have no facts....

    2. Lisa you are so full of it. He sees Carissa's mom almost every weekend and no trading in for any young model. His life was always around her. Ask anyone who knew him not someone jumping to weird conclusions.

      Delete
    3. If you don't know this man, this couple, Charissa's Family, or friends...please don't comment. 1) He did NOT TRADE HER IN FOR A YOUNGER MODEL. He still isn't dating; and 2)he is one of the nicest men that I know; 3) Charissa's family loves him and supports him. We may all be a bit jaded and think we are experts of our own right because we watch crime shows on t.v. However, in reality, we have to rely on the professionals who are paid and who care to find out the truth. It isn't like Suwanee has tons of deaths and they just blew this off. They looked into it completely and NO CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED. Diane Perry

    4. Even nice men who are the authors of gross negligence with guns that result in people dying should he held responsible for that behavior.

    5. Mike, you are correct living the rest of your life without your best friend and partner is the biggest consequence of all. Being married for 25 years and now living alone is worse than living at all.

  7. I lived in this neighborhood. These homes in this neighborhood are NOT dark inside due to the street lighting, WHICH by the way is at THE corner where this house is located. oh!! what he got married again? Guess his grieving time is ALOT shorter than mine would be if I killed my wife "acidentally".

  8. Duke was the first one to "spread the rumor" of this killing around the neighborhood. Posted on the Chatt Times neighborhood newsletter, making comments as to the suspicion of the man and the incident. Commenting about the suspicion of the cleaning agent. Now coming to defend the guy. A joke.
