Criminal Homicide Charged

Criminal homicide charges are pending against a Jackson County man, who allegedly ran over two people following an argument over the weekend. The Putnam County sheriff's department says that 47-year-old Anthony Lee Curtis of Cab Anderson Lane was charged with homicide after one of those individuals died. He was also booked on aggravated assault charges. According to reports, Curtis was riding around Saturday night with 71-year-old Ernest Preston Fulton of Pine Hill Road and a woman identified as Tammy Pippin. The three apparently ended up in the driveway of Fulton's home when, according to Sheriff David Andrews, "a domestic dispute turned into a homicide." The sheriff said Curtis is accused of backing his car into Pippin and Fulton, knocking them to the ground and then running over Fulton as he drove away.
