AUBURN - Barrow County authorities have found a woman's body in an Auburn well and charged a man with her killing.

Winder police are investigating whether the body was Tonya Faye Lynn, a missing mother of four. Police spokesman Chris Cooper said authorities charged the woman's husband, 42-year-old James Morris Lynn Jr., with obstruction and murder as they await results.

Police began investigating after the family reported the 38-year-old woman missing on Wednesday.

Cooper said James Lynn was initially arrested on an obstruction charge and later murder after authorities found what they believed to be his wife's body in the well. He said the case is still under investigation.

The woman's body has been sent to a Georgia Bureau of Investigation lab for identification and autopsy.
