The boyfriend of a Saucier woman found dead Monday was charged with her murder Tuesday night. Sherry Cruthirds Necaise, 53, was discovered shot to death inside the couple's mobile home in Henagar, Alabama.

Officials said her boyfriend, Eddie Charles Chandler, 52, was the one who discovered the body Monday morning. He was arrested that day on an unrelated gun possession charge. But by Tuesday, enough information had been gathered to charge him with Necaise's death.

Among the evidence was a gun that deputies believe is the murder weapon.

Chandler is being held in the Jackson County Jail. As of Tuesday night, no bond had been set.
