According to the sheriff's office, deputies responded to a 911 call at the home of Christina Galloway on State Street in Miller about 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, where they discovered Galloway had been stabbed to death.
Shortly after, the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office began searching for Christina Galloway's husband, Kurt Galloway (aka: Thomas Galloway), 38, in connection with his wife's death. When asked if he was a suspect in his wife's death, or simply a person of interest, Lawrence County Sheriff's dispatch replied, “A little bit of both.”
After a night-long search, Lawrence County Sheriff Tim Sexton said Kurt Galloway turned himself into authorities at the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office at 6:39 a.m. Thursday morning.
Sexton said Galloway is a suspect, and he will be charged with murder.
The preliminary investigation has revealed the victim did sustain multiple stab wounds, and sheriff's deputies recovered a knife from the scene which is believed to have been used in the crime. Early reports to the sheriff's office suggested that Christina Galloway died from gunshot wounds, which Sexton said was erroneous.
An autopsy will be performed on Christina Galloway's body in the Franklin County Coroner's Office in Columbus.
Kurt Galloway was being held in the Lawrence County Jail on Thursday, awaiting his appearance in the Lawrence County Municipal Court today.
