TATTNALL CO., GA (WTOC) -

Tattnall County investigators have arrested Barbara Polk for the murder of her friend, Ashley Sharpe, on July 11.

Polk told investigators someone shot at her car and fatally wounded Sharpe as the two drove out of Lyons toward Reidsville, where they both lived. Polk said she fled to Tattnall County to get medical attention for Sharpe.

"She has changed her story several times and she hasn't been truthful with us," said Captain Kevin Keyfauver of the Tattnall County Sheriff's Office. "The information we've gathered has come from other avenues."

Sheriff's investigators also arrested Polk's grandmother, Katherine Sharpe Lee, on Thursday night on charges of giving false information and making a false statement.
