Police say youth pastor killed wife, buried her
SAVANNAH, Ga. - Police say a Savannah youth pastor's confession led officers to his wife's body, which he had buried on the outskirts of town after killing her.
A man called police Sunday to say his brother-in-law, Eric Brian Golden, 35, had confessed to killing his wife, DeeDee Marie Golden, and was on his way to jail, Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Sgt. Mike Wilson said.
Golden, youth pastor at Southside Assembly of God, was taken into custody after he arrived at the jail.
Golden then led police to woods about six miles west of Interstate 95, where they found DeeDee Golden's body buried in a three-to-four-foot grave on the outskirts of Fort Stewart.
The man told detectives he killed his 35-year-old wife Thursday during a fight at their home.
Police are waiting for the results of a Georgia Bureau of Investigation autopsy before saying how the woman died.
Golden is being held at the jail.
