Virginia man charged with killing his sister, leaving her body in an inflatable pool, police say
Her body was found Saturday in the pool
WARRENTON, Va. – Authorities in Virginia say a man was charged with murder after his sister was found dead in an inflatable pool.
The Fauquier County Sheriff's Office issued a news release saying that deputies found the woman dead in the inflatable pool Saturday on the rear deck of a home.
Deputies determined that there had been a physical altercation at the home, where the woman lived. Another relative found her dead and called 911.
The Sheriff's Office said the victim was 53-year-old Angie A. Walls of Warrenton. The cause of death is being investigated through a pending autopsy.
The news release said detectives charged her brother 51-year-old Ashton Dunlap Berry, also of Warrenton, with first-degree murder. He was being held without bond.
The public defender's office didn't immediately respond to a message left over the holiday weekend asking if one of its lawyers would represent Berry.
