STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Bulloch County sheriff's investigators have charged a 25-year-old man in connection with his girlfriend's slaying and assault and kidnapping of the woman's daughter.

Investigators say relatives of Frank Walters called the Screven County Sheriff's Office when Walters came to their home in Sylvania with a young girl, a gun, and a confession that he'd killed Deidra Thompson, his girlfriend and the young girl's mother.

Sheriff's deputies went to Thompson's home on Swallowtail Drive and found her body. Walters was arrested in Screven County and brought back to Statesboro.

Walters faces charges of murder, rape, kidnapping, armed robbery, aggravated assault, child molestation, financial card fraud and more. He is being held in the Bulloch County jail.
