“First of all is, we got a call about a car fire,” said Chickasaw County Chief Deputy James Meyers.
While responding to it, a domestic dispute call came in that led investigators to the home of Will and Amanda Porter. “Once we got to the residence, a deputy found (Will Porter’s) wife deceased in the trailer of apparent stab wounds.”
But Will Porter was not home. “A short time later we found him at his grandparent’s house,” explained Meyers.
Investigators are still talking to Porter and don’t have a motive; but “he complained about talking some pills the day that this took place.”
Porter is expected to be arraigned in court sometime this afternoon. His wife’s body is in Jackson for an autopsy.
