A grand jury indicted Adams on Feb. 4 on charges of malice murder, felony murder, first-degree home invasion, two counts of aggravated assault and two firearm possession charges, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Thursday.
In the 911 call Adams made after the shooting, which was obtained by news outlets, he said he shot a man because his wife was cheating on him.
“My wife was cheating on me, and I couldn’t take it,” Adams is heard saying on the recording. “I didn’t shoot her, I shot the guy. I couldn’t stop myself.”
He was being held in the Athens-Clarke County Jail without bond, the newspaper reported. His next court appearance was scheduled for March 10. It’s unclear whether he had a lawyer to comment on his behalf.
