Man Kills Mother of His Kids With a Rock, Georgia Police Say

Authorities say a Roswell woman is dead after a dispute with the father of her children who apparently rammed his car into the front of her home, struck her with a rock and held police off for hours before surrendering.

Roswell police spokesman Lt. James McGee says 37-year-old Calvin Meyers was charged in the attack Saturday on 40-year-old Minka R. Grogan. The initial charge was aggravated assault, but McGee says more charges are pending.

He says Meyers is the father of two of the Grogan's four children.

Meyers also chased a man in the Grogan home with a butcher knife. The man told police he was there to mow the lawn and was taking a shower.

He says he escaped by locking himself in the bathroom.
