CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The man charged in the death of his wife has been booked into the Chatham County Jail. 

The Chatham County District Attorney's office says Lawrence Piper was driving a boat under the influence of alcohol and cocaine when his wife, Dawn Piper, fell out of their boat and hit the propeller. The family rushed her to the nearest dock, which was the Crab Shack, but she did not survive. This happened back in 2010. 

The Chatham County DA's office has charged him with homicide by vessel. According to the Chatham County Booking website, Piper was booked and no bond was offered. 

The next court date for Piper is set for mid December.
