Goff, 24, of the 4400 block of Reynolds Street in Hephzibah, was taken into custody after Tiffany Nicole Salter, 22, was found dead in a wooded area behind his home.

Investigators said Goff had called his mother earlier and told her that he and Salter had fought and that he had choked her. His mother called 911, deputies said.

Richmond County sheriff’s deputies and Hephzibah police arrived shortly before 7 a.m. and found Sal­ter unresponsive.

Goff scuffled with deputies before being taken into custody, a police statement said.

Salter is Richmond County’s 18th homicide of 2012.

Domestic Abuse

I wish this could warn all young girls to seek help the minute any relationship turns violent for the first time!!! It also is a reason for all of us to support Augusta Safe Homes for women just like this!

Look him up

This isn't this miscreant's first brush with the law. He needs to ride the lightning as far as I'm concerned; but absent the death penalty, stay in prison until he is on a cane.
