BAMBERG, S.C. (AP) – Authorities say a 70-year-old Georgia woman is charged with murder for killing her pastor husband in Bamberg County.

An arrest warrant from the State Law Enforcement Division says Annie McNair shot her husband, Frank, in the chest Oct. 1 and he died at the hospital.

Authorities say Annie McNair also was wounded and taken to a Columbia hospital.

Investigators now say she killed her husband and tried to kill herself.

It wasn’t known if the Garden City, Georgia, woman had an attorney.

Frank McNair was the former pastor at Holy Temple Church of God in Christ in Bamberg and was currently serving as an elder at St. Noah Church of God in Christ in Aiken. He also was a math teacher and vice principal at Denmark-Olar High School.
