Columbia County authorities were investigating a late-night incident Sunday that left a man hospitalized and his wife dead.
Philip West, 46, remained in critical condition early Monday after being treated for a stab wound to his chest, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.
“At this stage of the investigation, evidence suggests this is a domestic incident,” Morris said.
Deputies responded to West’s home at 2006 Shoreline Drive near Grovetown at 11:12 p.m. after someone called 911 and dispatchers could hear a woman screaming in the background.
