Former Columbus police officer indicted for murder of paramedic girlfriend

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A fired Columbus police officer is remaining behind bars after being indicted by a grand jury in his girlfriend’s murder.

According to the Associated Press, a grand jury indicted former officer William Talley on murder charges on Tuesday, Nov. 19 in the fatal shooting of his paramedic girlfriend Kelly Levinsohn, meaning there is enough evidence to go to trial.

The indictment says Talley shot Levinsohn in the back of the head in May.

Talley’s lawyer now says he cannot afford his $1,000,000 bond and will remain in jail.

The Associated Press also reports that Assistant District Attorney Robin King says Talley has been declared mentally competent to stand trial.
