Husband Charged With Murder in Death of Dispatcher Wife

Authorities have charged the husband of missing Georgia 911 dispatcher Theresa Parker with murder in her death.

Authorities arrested Samuel Parker, 52, at 9:55 a.m. Monday at his home, said Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the FBI assisted his deputies in making the arrest, Wilson said.

Theresa Walker, a dispatcher for Walker County, was last seen the night of March 21, 2007. Authorities had called her estranged husband a person of interest in her disappearance.

Sam Parker, a former Lafayette Police officer, had maintained his innocence.

The couple was in the process of getting a divorce when the woman disappeared.
