Plea listening to delayed for Columbus man accused of stabbing spouse to loss of life in 2019


COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) – The family of a Columbus woman who stabbed expected to see the man who is now responsible, according to police, for pleading guilty.

Instead, DeAnn King’s family, 34, showed up in a Muscogee County courtroom and was informed by court officials that the suspect, the victim’s husband, Marcus King, would not make a plea today.

Police say her husband stabbed her to death at her home on Dorsey Drive on March 25, 2019.

“And we are tired. We need peace. We need closure. And we don’t have it. And that’s like a game for them. For the defender. It’s a game because why would you put that on the file and then on the day of the draw. Why are you doing this. Why are you doing this to us, ”said Chavala Robinson, DeAnn King’s sister.
