The case remains open, a police spokesperson says. Charissa Thomas was 'accidentally' shot last October.
The case remains open in a fatal domestic shooting in Suwanee from last October. However, Suwanee Police "don't anticipate bringing any charges" against the man who says he "accidentally" shot his wife inside their home.
Suwanee Police spokesperson Capt. Clyde Byers said Wednesday (February 20) that the case remains open into the homicide of Charissa Thomas. Her husband, Steven Thomas, told Suwanee Police that he "accidentally" shot his wife in the head.
The incident occurred in the early morning hours of October 10 in the couple's home in the Chattahoochee Run subdivision, according to police. Officers who responded to Steven Thomas' call to dispatch found Charissa Thomas' body at the top of the stairs inside the home.
Steven Thomas has remained free since the incident after being questioned by Suwanee Police.
A gun was found placed near the body, and a cell phone was found near her body.
In the master bedroom, officers noticed that a bedside stand had been moved irregularly, away from a wall. There was blood leading from Charissa Thomas' body through the bedroom and into the master bathroom.
In the bathroom, the sink had several spots of blood on it, and water was still running. Officers also found a cleaning agent and a rag lying on the floor, just outside the bathroom in the bedroom.
